I went to L.A. and we went to a museum and I got this

Postcard back:

GLOBAL VIEW OF VENUS SURFACE
Main portion of the highland area, Aphrodite, is shown in a global view of Venus, stripped of its perpetual cloud cover by the Pioneer Orbiter spacecraft radar altimeter.To the right of this picture is the Scorpion Tail of Aphrodite, believed an active volcano region. The point of observation is about 45 degrees south of the equator. Pioneer Venus continues to orbit the planet and obtain terrain data.
