I don't think we can see it with our scopes, but it sure is pretty...and pretty strange.

Is this a true color image? If so, what is the source of the blue material? Also, are the dozens of greater craterlets inside the ejecta zone newer than the ejecta?

HiRise can take true-color image, so perhaps it is. The blue color is just the rock under the red dust, blown away from impact.

I can see him painting happy little craters right now....

 

He even inspired me to try to paint in high school at home....until my mother said my mountains looked like teepees....and thus ended my painting career....

That is really unfortunate. A parent often very little idea how powerful their words can be.

 

Here is a little thing I did a time ago

I have a Bob Ross t-shirt where he's painting the andromeda galaxy. My favorite t-shirt.
