Cantaloupe in Color

Explanation: Violet, green, and ultraviolet images of Triton from Voyager 2 were map projected into cylindrical coordinates and combined to produce this false color terrain map. Several compositionally distinct terrain and geologic features are portrayed. At center is a gray blue unit referred to as 'cantaloupe' terrain because of its unusual topographic texture. The unit appears to predate other units to the left.
