Infrared color imaging of Vesta
Comparison of images of the region around Antonia crater on Vesta (it's in the top right part of the images) as seen through different filters. Images used: 0013824 (F2, 555 nm), 0013826 (F4, 917 nm), 0013828 (F6, 829 nm), 0013829 (F7, 653 nm), and 0013830 (F8, 438 nm). The top left image is approximately true color; all others are false-color images. Images in right column are highly saturated versions of the images in the left column. The sequence of images was taken on October 30, 2011, from an altitude of 725 kilometers and with a resolution of 68 meters per pixel.
