This picture shows the area around the North Pole of Venus. It was made using radar. Different colors show the height of the land. The North Pole is near the center of the picture. The red area just below center is the "continent" Ishtar Terra. The bright white part of Ishtar Terra is Maxwell Montes, the highest mountain chain on Venus. This picture was made using radar data from the Magellan spacecraft.
