Four color views of Ceres
Filed under pretty pictures, amateur image processing, asteroids, Dawn, asteroid 1 Ceres
Dawn captured the images for these global views of Ceres on May 4, 2015 through red, green, and blue filters. All four pictures are made from the same data, processed in different ways. On top left, it is processed to simulate what a human might see. At top right, color saturation has been increased, revealing a relatively blue inner splash and relatively red outer splash around the crater Occator and other, smaller craters. At lower left, the contrast has been increased, emphasizing relatively brighter and darker regions. At lower right, both contrast and saturation have been increased.
