About this image

This false color image shows part of Terra Cimmeria. The complexity of the surface is evident in the multiple colors seen in this image. The bright blue-white and lavender spots towards the bottom of the image stand out against the more usual blues and yellows.

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.
