Slides Taken by Akatsuki's IR2 Camera (video) Hokkaido University Share Print E-Mail Loading video... Caption These are slides showing two-hourly 2.26-μm radiance obtained by the IR2 camera onboard Akatsuki on July 11-12, 2016. The brightness is shown reversely (see the color bar at the bottom shown in the units of W m-2 sr-1 μm-1), so the brighter areas represent fewer radiance, indicating thicker clouds. Remark: The original images between 18 and 22 h include the dayside of Venus in the observational field of view, so the radiance change near the day-night boundary in the middle of the images is spurious owing to the dayside brightness.
