The Rage of Love

A super storm has been raging on the south pole of our sister planet, Venus for some time  now. Apparently it breaks up and then reforms, creating giant super cyclones. We first took note of them in 2006 and have watched these cyclones form and re-form, maybe marking a permanent part of our sister's planetary atmosphere.

Venus moves very slowly, taking 243 earth days to spin on its axis . . . give truth to the saying its a "long days night"; its atmosphere however thunders across the planet at breakneck speeds, circling it every four days or so. The cause has baffled scientists for some time and the resident cyclones only increase their consternation.

The eye of the storm!
