THEMIS Image of the Day, April 16, 2019. This false-color VIS image shows a crater located in Utopia Planitia. The crater’s interior shows ample evidence for an ice-rich mantling material that has slipped and slumped away from the crater’s upraised rim.
The THEMIS VIS camera contains 5 filters. The data from different filters can be combined in multiple ways to create a false color image. These false color images may reveal subtle variations of the surface not easily identified in a single band image.
