Galileo False-Color Moon Image Caption

The image is a three-filter false-color image produced from Galileo Solid State Imager (SSI) data. It was created by Dr. Edwin V. Bell, II (NSSDC/Raytheon ITSS), from separate filter images present on the Galileo Imaging CD-ROMs. It was produced by combining colorized versions of the green, red, and infrared (9680 nm) filters of the SSI. The green filter was colorized as blue, the red filter as green, and the IR filter as red and the resulting images combined. The software used to colorize and blend the individual images together was Color It!™.
