This UV image of the Venus "tropics" was taken by the Venus Express Venus Monitoring Camera (VMC) from a distance of approximately 15 000 km (orbit #920, 27 October 2008). The southern pole is in the upper right corner of the image. The dark area in the lower left is the sub-solar region; small-scale wind streaks on its border mark regions of vigorous dynamics.
