More 1000nm imaging of the night-side of Venus. This one based on data from 9th, 13th and 14th May derotated in Winjupos to the 14th May.  Darker (cooler) areas seen in my image from last week have moved on by ~20degrees.

Dark arc by crescent is an artefact from the derotation process when you have a reducing crescent size
