Venus Express:

Ultraviolet image of the southern hemisphere of Venus, taken by the VMC instrument onboard Venus Express. The picture was taken from a distance of 30,000 km from the surface, and shows how the planet’s clouds change from spotty and fragmented at low-latitudes, to streaky at mid-latitudes, and hazy around the poles.
