Sapas Mons on Venus
Sapas Mons on Venus Sapas Mons is displayed in the center of this 3D view of Venus’ surface created from U.S. Geological Survey maps with color recorded by the Soviet Union’s Venera 13 and 14 probes. The viewer is more than 500 kilometers (300 miles) away from the mountain, and the vertical scale has been exaggerated 10 times. Lava flows extend for hundreds of kilometers across the fractured plains in the foreground. NASA/JPL
