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.
