About this image

Today's false color image shows an unnamed crater north of Meridiani Planum. The dark blue features are small basaltic sand dunes.

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.
