  1. The average \(\bar{a}\) and standard deviation \(\hat{a}\) in coefficient a, and the standard deviation σ in residuals from Eq. (4). Coefficient a and residuals from Eq. (4) are derived by fitting Eq. (4) to radial residuals of limb points detected in images listed in Additional file 1 from the ellipses. Cases L and S mean the cases where the distance between the spacecraft and the Venus center is shorter than 1.6 × 104 km and longer than 3.5 × 104 km, respectively
