Miralaidji Corona and Diana Chasma Magellan radar view of two landforms on Venus: Miralaidji Corona (feature at upper right with radiating fractures) and part of Diana Chasma (horizontal structure to the left of Miralaidji). Coronas result from rising bodies of magma that generate volcanic flows and fault patterns. Diana Chasma is one of the deepest points on the planet.
