About this image

Today's false color image shows part of Noachis Terra. The large craters are unnamed, as is the channel in the center of the image. Dark blue tones in this false color image indicate basaltic sands.

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.

Please see the THEMIS Data Citation Note for details on crediting THEMIS images.
