This figure shows coverage of Venus by orbital tracks during the reporting period from 23 June 2012 to 21 July 2012 (medium term plan (MTP) #81). The sequence of yellow lines to the left shows the ascending branches of the orbits and the sequence of purple lines to the right shows the descending branches. The position of the terminator - indicated by the two brightness levels of the background image - corresponds to the last orbit of this MTP. Purple triangles along the top are the pericentre locations (on left, at the top of the ascending branches) and along the bottom are the apocentre locations (on right, at the bottom of the descending branches). Yellow triangles denote start and end of solar eclipses; blue triangles denote beginning and end of Earth occultations.
