About this image

This VIS image of Charlier Crater's sand sheet was taken at the same time as yesterday's IR image. In this image the dunes are darker than the surroundings, unlike yesterday's thermal image. In the visible wavelengths we see that the sand is darker in color than the surrounding dust.
