NightRide to Venus

How would you like to see a volcano erupting. Not interesting. What if its on Venus. Here is an image of the same. It definately looks like pancakes, but its actually lava seeping from underground and cooling. Creates a marvellous effect. I suppose this picture is from the Magnellan spacecraft.
Venus Express is finally in orbit around Venus. Its been circling around Venus in a elliptical orbit. SO much for science.
