Venera 13's landing site
A processed and colorized panorama from the Venera 13 lander, the third spacecraft to return images from the surface of Venus, on March 3, 1982. Data gaps were filled in by hand. Four Venera landers remain the only spacecraft to have returned photos from beneath Venus' obscuring cloud deck, two each in 1978 and 1982.
