Song For Drella
Today's image is presented in the Pop Art style of American artist Andy Warhol. The upper left panel is the original MDIS three-color image. The other three panels are colorized to simulate Warhol's iconic silk-screened paintings. The name Warhol was recently approved by the International Astronomical Union for the large impact crater at the center of the scene. Warhol crater has an unusual elongated central peak, a smooth floor probably formed from impact melt, and abundant hollows.
