On this radar-map of Venus, built with data that NASA’s Magellan gathered in the early 1990s, the areas that were over-flown by Venus Express on 10 August 2006 are indicated by the named features. The VIRTIS instrument on board retrieved unprecedented information about the surface temperature, and so provided the first ever large-scale temperature map of the Southern hemisphere of Venus.
