Venus texture map (32)
Venus texture map
Due to the high opacity of the Venusian atmosphere, it is not possible to observe the surface at visible wavelengths, and therefore Planetary Visions has generated the Venus texture map from radar imagery obtained during the Magellan mission. The colours used are based on those seen by the Russian Venera missions.
