Had a lot of fun with this data set. Decided to make a false color image and a true color image out of it and make a corresponding animation transitioning between the two.

Both were a lot of fun to make, but personally, I always have really enjoyed natural color images over narrowband images. Which do you enjoy more? Natural or false?
