SP-424 The Voyage of Mariner 10

Fig. 6-10. As Mariner left Venus behind, imaging team experimenters had built up a new understanding of the rotating atmosphere of the cloud-shreded planet, an understanding that was expected to provide much basic information about planetary atmospheres in general. The rotation of the ultraviolet markings in four days as previously postulated from Earth-based observations was confirmed.
