Highlights include a paper on imaging techniques for observing Mercury’s sodium tail and observations of the current elongation of Venus.
There is also a report on the wave phenomenon (also known as the cloud discontinuity), which can be observed on Venus with infrared imaging. Section Director Paul Abel also discusses this phenomenon on a post on the Forum, and calls for further observations.
