    Default Um, There's a Spot on My Venus

    Scientist are trying to figure this one out:


    http://www.livescience.com/space/090...ight-spot.html



    A sudden bright spot that appeared in the clouds of Venus just days after a comet left a bruise on Jupiter has scientists stumped as to its cause.


    Venus' bright spot, first noticed by amateur astronomer Frank Melillo of Holtsville, NY on July 19, is not the first such brightening noticed on our cloudy neighbor, said planetary scientist Sanjay Limaye of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.


    "We have seen such events before," he told SPACE.com.


    This time is a little different though because the brightening is confined to a smaller region, Limaye said. It also came in the wake of Jupiter's own new (dark) spot, believed to be the result of a comet impact — Limaye attributes the fortunate confluence of the two events for the attention Venus is now getting in the astronomical community.


    After Melillo reported the spot, other amateur astronomers and the European Space Agency's (ESA) Venus Express spacecraft confirmed the presence of the blemish.


    The new Venus Express images show that the bright spot actually appeared in the planet's southern hemisphere four days before Melillo saw it and that it has since begun to spread out, becoming stretched by the wind's in Venus' thick atmosphere.

    All the carbon dioxide from cars, power plants, airplanes, and cows is obviously changing the climate. We need new global warming laws im.......wait....you said on Venus?.....Nevermind.

    I've always found it fascinating that while we're doing our thing here on Earth comets and hitting other planets, massive climate changes are occuring as a result, asteroids are colliding etc.

    It's a big big universe...stuff like this really puts everything into perspective. We're just little ants scurrying around our mound.
    Stay out of it, dude.
