This clip is composed of a mosaic of the southern hemisphere of Venus, as imaged by the Visible and Infrared Thermal Imaging Spectrometer (VIRTIS) on board ESA’s Venus Express. The south polar atmospheric dipole is seen at different wavelengths.
The images were acquired during three observations sessions in May 2006, at a distance of about 65 000 km above the surface.
