THEMIS: What has filled Asimov Crater?

Asimov Crater in false color (THEMIS_IOTD_20170428)THEMIS Image of the Day, April 28, 2017. Today’s false color image shows part of Asimov Crater. Asimov Crater is unique in that the crater floor has been completely filled with material to approximately the crater rim and then a series depressions have occurred near the crater 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.
