Venus - Magellan

Magellan radar image of the Venera 10 landing site on Venus.

The exact coordinates of the Venera 10 lander site are not known, but the estimate is centered at 15.42N,291.51E, near the southeastern edge of Beta Regio which is also the center of this image. The Venera lander panorama shows Venera 10 landed on a plain (the dark region) and not the brighter tessera. This image is about 600 km across and north is up. (Magellan C1-MIDR 15N283;1,framelet 32)
