This figure shows coverage of Venus by orbital tracks during the reporting period 29 April to 26 May 2012 (medium term plan (MTP) #79). The indicated positions of the terminator, Earth and Sun correspond to the last orbit of the MTP.

The orbit sequence to the right shows the ascending branch. Purple triangles along the top are pericentre locations (on right, at the top of the ascending branch) and along the bottom are apocentre locations (on left, 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, geometric conditions prevented the imaging of any surface features.
