Venus Express coverage of Venus during 1-28 April, 2012
This figure shows coverage of Venus by orbital tracks during the reporting period 1-28 April 2012 (medium term plan (MTP) #78). The orbit sequence to the left shows the ascending branch. Purple triangles along the top are pericentre locations (on right, at the top of the descending branch) and along the bottom are apocentre locations (on right, at the bottom of the descending node). In the ascending branch, yellow triangles denote start and end of solar eclipse; blue triangles denote beginning and end of Earth occultations.
During this period observations of the ground features Ovda Regio and Tellus Tessera were made.
