For the last 2 years, the Venus Express (launched by the European Space Agency) has been orbiting Venus. It has added to what we know about the planet.
"The surprises have continued to emerge from the data sent back. Venus's atmosphere is extremely fickle and changes its structure from day to day. Images sent back show that at both poles there is a giant double-vortex, each 2000km across, similar to the eye of a hurricane. The vortices rotate in opposite directions, and the southern vortex changes its shape rapidly. In addition, the planet emits a glow of infra-red radiation..."
Anyone got any symbolic takes on all this? I'm sure I haven't!
P.S. As I write, Venus is in Libra and in a close Grand Trine with the Moon and Neptune. It doesn't come much nicer than that!
