Venus Image 2007/03/15(UT)
Christophe Pellier,Arnaud van Kranenbu
Although transparency was poor,seeing was very good for the altitude and the results are surprising.
The UV image suffered considerably from the hazy sky.
The 1-micron images display clear and contrasty details ; this is not really a surprise but they're rarely that visible !
But the most interesting is the presence of a corresponding banding pattern in green light,identical in both so it must not be artefacts.
I think I will now image Venus in the full range of UV,B,G,R,IR colors..
