Description:

This is a Magellan radar image mosaic of part of Venus, centered at 51 degrees south latitude, 21 degrees east longitude. Each pixel, or picture element, represents 225 meters. The scene is approximately 200 kilometers (124 miles) east to west by 160 kilometers (99 miles) north to south. Running from west to east across the center of the image is part of a 1,200 kilometer (744 miles) long by 20 kilometer (12 mile) wide lava channel in the Lada Terra region of Venus. Numerous streamlined structures within the channel attest to the very high temperature, very fluid lavas (resulting in both thermal and mechanical erosion) responsible for carving the channel.
