Venera 13 Lander image of the surface of Venus at 7.5 S, 303. E, east of Phoebe Regio. Venera 13 survived on the surface for 2 hours, 7 minutes, long enough to obtain 14 images on 1 March, 1982. This color 170 degree panorama was produced using dark blue, green and red filters and has a resolution of 4 to 5 min. Part of the spacecraft is at the bottom of the image. Flat rock slabs and soil are visible. The true color is difficult to judge because the Venerian atmosphere filters out blue light. The surface composition is similar to terrestrial basalt. On the ground in foreground is a camera lens cover. Date/Time: 1982-03-01; Venera 13 Lander; NASA Image ID number: vg00261, vg00262; Instrument: Television Camera (Panoramic Telephotometer).


False color global view of Venus created from Magellan radar imaging. The coloring was based on Venera 13 and 14 Lander images, and the Magellan radar images from cycle 1 mapped on to a computer simulated globe, centered at 0 degrees E longitude, 0 latitude. Gaps in the data were filled in with Pioneer Venus Orbiter data. Venus is about 12,100 km in diameter. Date/Time: 1992-03-16; Magellan; NASA Image ID number: P-39570; Instrument: Synthetic Aperture Radar


Galileo colorized image of Venus taken from 2.7 million km about 5 days after closest approach on 15 February 1990. The exposure was taken through a violet filter and colored blue to enhance contrast. The westward moving sulfuric acid clouds at the equator and polar hoods are visible. Great detail (resolution of about 70 km) can be seen in the cloud structure, which is moving at speeds up to 100 m/s (230 miles/hr). Venus is 12,100 km in diameter, north is up, and the evening terminator is to the left. The bright spot at right is the sub-solar point (local noon). Date/Time: 1990-02-15; Galileo; NASA Image ID number: P-37218; Instrument: Solid State Imaging CCD Camera.
