Colors represent altitude:

  • purple (over 9,000 metres below surface level),
  • blue (3,000 below),
  • green (zero altitude),
  • yellow (2,000 metres above surface level),
  • orange (4,000 metres above)
  • red (8,200 metres above).

A massive impact crater known as South Pole - Aitken basin is seen here as the purple and dark blue patch just below the south pole and is 2,500 kilometers in diameter.
