About this image

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. Today's false color image shows an unnamed crater on the floor of the much larger Molesworth Crater. Dunes on the floor of the crater are blueish, and surface sands are typically this color in false color images.
