Aonia craters in false color (THEMIS_IOTD_20170426)THEMIS Image of the Day, April 26, 2017. Today’s false color image shows several small craters in Aonia Terra. The false colors help show differences in the patterns of debris ejected in the impacts.

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.
