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 a cross section of Trouvelot Crater and the smaller unnamed crater on its floor. Dark blue in this color combination indicates basaltic sand, visible in sand dunes on the floors of both craters.
