Just for fun: NASA image of the day

Did you know that NASA posts an 'Image of the Day' on their website? This recent example is a view of Venus.

 Venus Rising

This composite image of Venus was processed to improve contrast and to emphasize small features, and was color-coded to represent elevation. Images were from the Magellan and Venera spacecraft and the Earth-based Arecibo radar observatory.
