Venus - Magellan

3-D perspective view of the "crater farm" on Venus

Computer generated 3-dimensional perspective view of the "crater farm" on Venus, consisting of the 37.3 km diameter Saskia in the foreground (28.6S,337.1E), 47.6 km Danilova (26.35S,337.25E) to the left, and 62.7 km Aglaonice to the right (26.5S,340E). The image was created by superimposing Magellan images in topography data, and coloring is based on Venera 13 and 14 Lander images. (Magellan press release P-39146)
