2020 03 18 19 UV Change clouds

Venus is the second planet in order of distance from the sun. It has dimensions similar to the earth and its peculiarity is that it is the only planet that rotates clockwise, with retrograde motion. It is covered by a very dense layer of clouds that make observation of its surface almost impossible. Clouds can be photographed using special filters that block the entire electromagnetic spectrum with the exception of the UV band. The image shows the rate of change in the atmosphere of Venus. The Venusian atmosphere is moved by winds that blow on average at 400 kilometers per hour, just a day, or a few hours, to see substantial differences in the cloud conformations. For the photo of March 18, I added a total of 16,000 while for that of March 19, 18,000.
