Full data on this image has now been released via the THEMIS Data Releases website.
The THEMIS Image of the Day will be exploring the nomenclature of Mars for the next three weeks.
Cerberus Fossae is comprised of two east/west oriented linear
depressions. One of these depressions is shown in the
VIS mosaic above. The region surrounding the depression
is mainly volcanic in nature.
Nomenclature Fact of the Day: Since the planet Venus is named
for the Roman goddess of love, its features are named
with female names. Large craters are named for famous
women, small craters are named with female first names,
and other features are named for mythological goddesses
of many cultures.

Note: this THEMIS visual image has not been radiometrically nor geometrically calibrated for this preliminary release. An empirical correction has been performed to remove instrumental effects. A linear shift has been applied in the cross-track and down-track direction to approximate spacecraft and planetary motion. Fully calibrated and geometrically projected images will be released through the Planetary Data System in accordance with Project policies at a later time.
