Venus unveiled

Don P. Mitchell rounds up the best available images of Venus both from space and from the Soviet Venera 9 landing. I am most struck by radar imagery showing Ishtar Terra, a continent-scale highland at Venus' north pole. It is all too easy to imagine a terraformed version with bays and oceans. Also, fjords.
