Hi,

I was observing and imaging Venus this weekend. Sunday morning I captured some of our "Sister Planets" UV cloud structure, it's north pole is currently showing some very prominent banding.

Cheers, Dan :)

Hey,

Thank you, Paul! Everytime I look at your avatar it looks like Sunshine is begging me for a snack. Here is an image from the orbiting "Venus Express". I didn't know that Venus had polar bands until I processed my video yesterday and saw them. Today, I googled "Venus" and sure enough, they're quite bright as you can see! I guess you really do learn something new everyday.

Best wishes, Dan :)

Nice! We have'nt had much Venus around here lately - she's been slighted!
