Face to face

A new animation using data from the European Space Agency's Venus Express spacecraft shows that the double eye of the giant vortex at Venus' South pole has disappeared according to a study by Dr. Giuseppe Piccioni of Italy's National Institute for Astrophysics. Dr. Piccioni and colleagues also tracked the clouds in the Venusian atmosphere in order to measure the wind speeds of the significant atmospheric "super-rotation" rotating 60 times faster than planet underneath creating tons of wind shear.
