See The Spectacular Images Of Planet Venus From Japan’s Akatsuki spacecraft

Japan’s Akatsuki spacecraft, currently in orbit around Venus, has been busy snapping images – and they’ve now been reprocessed to give us a whole new look at this hot planet.

These spectacular images are processed by photographer Damia Bouic. The spacecraft has five cameras on board, taking images in ultraviolet, visible, and infrared light.

The images are “false color”, which means that certain features are highlighted by different colors to bring them out a bit more. But they’re still very much real.
