Ida and Dactyl in enhanced color (distant view)
The images have been resized to 200 percent of their original size. Three images of Ida taken through infrared, green, and violet filters were combined to make this composite view. In the time that elapsed between each frame, Ida rotated, so the green and infrared images had to be warped to match the violet-filter image in order for them to overlap.
Original image data dated on or about August 28, 1993.
