I love the comparison. Every now and then I'll look at some hills (on Earth) and imagine how there's some Venusian equivalent up there, of comparable size but different in so many details. Your picture captures the mystery those clouds hid for so many centuries.

Our sister planet!
It could have been a tropical world with mean temperatures comparable to the temperatures they are encountering in Australia at the present time but that's far from being the case! blink.gif
Even at the top of Maxwell Montes, it is a hell!

Those animations are magnificent and suddenly make understandable the dynamics that cause the famous Y shape.

This is a great mission.
