Impressive.

May be awhile before we return to Venus. Perhaps we need a ground based forum for the time being.

Phil...

Thanks for the comment. I had no idea ground based radar had gotten this good. When I saw the image it just blew me away.
Bodes well for long term monitoring.

Seeing the Venera images from Ted Stryk's blog http://planetimages.blogspot.ca/2015/03/ve...hy-we-need.html
just brought back to me how little we know about our sister world. At 62 years old wonder how much more we will know in my lifetime.

Me too. I've not seen the radar data presented so well before, so it's a real revelation for us non-experts.

Me too again. A lot I hope.
