On October 25, 1975, Venera 10 landed on the surface of Venus and acquired a 180-degree panorama of the surface. Ted Stryk used the images in the panorama to create this artistic view of what the scene would look like if one were standing on the surface. The objects in the image are real, though the arrangement is not. (Colorized)

"Sun glint on shallow Lake Chad in Chad & Nigeria. October 17", Astronaut Karen Nyberg. Beautiful "painting" shows dramatic scene: white stain is water remains, dark stain is vegetation on what used to be lake bed. Lake's water level has greatly decreased due to excessive irrigation and climate change.
