The view shows part of Galindo (V40) quadrangle looking north; 200 km wide Nagavonyi Corona is in the foreground. Coronae are roughly circular, volcanic features believed to form over hot upwellings of magma within the Venusian mantle. A 2-km shield volcano behind the corona partly buries the Phoebo Regio highlands (shown as radar-bright mounds).
