Venus weather studies with NOTCam
Near-IR observations of the nightside of Venus using NOTCam HR-Camera and
narrow-band filters were obtained in July 2020 as part of a large
collaboration using several space and ground-based telescopes, led by
Javier Peralta, to monitor the changing cloud layers.
At the NOT this was the first time we observed so close to the Sun.
