  • The Solar Orbiter spacecraft captured this video of XO Venus' glowing crescent moon as it flew past the planet during an orbital maneuver on Monday (August 9).The video was taken by the Solar Orbiter's Heliospheric Imager, or SoloHI, as the European Space Agency (ESA)/NASA satellite jointly compressed by a hot, cloudy planet at a distance of 4,967 miles (7,995 kilometers).

    Monday's flyby took place just one day before an internal solar system explorer visited Venus. On Tuesday, the Mercury-bound BepiColombo, a joint mission of ESA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), passed only 340 miles (550 kilometers) across Venus.Because both spacecraft are in cruising range. Therefore, not all instruments can see Venus up close.The cameras available on both

    spacecraft were unable to capture detailed images of the planet's surface. This is due to the intense fluorescence caused by high albedo or reflection.Ideal We will be able to fix some features in the night side of the planet. But there are too many daytime signals,” Phillip Hess, an astrophysicist at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C., said in a statement. “On the picture, only a fraction of the day appears.
