The view from NASA's Magellan spacecraft shows Yavine Corona, looking northeast. Coronae are roughly circular, volcanic features believed to form over hot upwellings of magma within the Venusian mantle.

The view shows Yavine Corona, a 500-km-wide asymmetric feature at latitude 5 degrees S., longitude 248.5 degrees; looking northeast. Coronae are roughly circular, volcanic features believed to form over hot upwellings of magma within the Venusian mantle. Yavine corona contains 2 novae; nova are circular hills having stellate fractures or grabens.

This is a three-dimensional perspective view of Venusian Terrains composed of reduced resolution left-looking synthetic-aperture radar images merged with altimetry data from the Magellan spacecraft.
