Carl Sagan Viking dust panorama
The original image was acquired in panchromatic mode -- that is, in black-and-white. It was processed and then colorized using the real colors retrieved from other images taken at sunset.
Olivier de Goursac shares this image as a tribute to Carl Sagan and to the Planetary Society.
Original image data dated on or about January 5, 1977.
