The Moon from Cassini VIMS
Filed under pretty pictures, global views, amateur image processing, the Moon, Cassini
During its Earth flyby on August 18, 1999, Cassini pointed its optical instruments at Earth and the Moon to gather data that would be useful for calibrating their instruments. This true-color image of the Moon was composed from VIMS data by Gordan Ugarkovic. Ugarkovic created a "super-resolution" view by stacking four VIMS images together.
