It’s time once again for another Where In The Universe Challenge. Test your visual knowledge of the cosmos by naming where in the Universe this image was taken and give yourself extra points if you can name the spacecraft responsible for this picture. Post your guesses in the comments section, and check back later at this same post to find the answer. To make this challenge fun for everyone, please don’t include links or extensive explanations with your answer. Good luck!
UPDATE: The answer has been posted below.
This is a radar image of Venus, taken by the Magellan spacecraft. The radar is able to peer through the murky clouds on Venus to show the surface, so as SteveZodiac said, Venus does look a little naked in this image!
Magellan plunged into Venus’ atmosphere in 1994, never to be heard from again, but for more images and information about the mission, check out the Magellan website.
