Thanks for all this great info folks. Seriously.

It just amazes me the amount of knowledge contained by the members (most) of this site.

This thread has convinced me even more how unique Earth really is. The formation of life-as we know & understand-just might be so complicate that it would be impossible to replicate. Thus making us the only ones Here...

Sad.... if the universe has to depend on the current human race. IMO

Oh Yeah!! I can only imagine the nice setup I could fund with that kinda money

Hmmm lets see, a Meade 20" MAX SCT, an SBIG imager or two, a few nice Nagler eyepieces.... a 20" dome observatory... Heck its only 35,000$! Thats a fraction of what NASA spends on a dang toilet seat! And I bet I could do more with it. Oh if only to be rich...

BTW, I think the reason why amateurs were the first to see this storm and the last one is because, well, amateurs are the only astronomers still looking at the planets on a nightly basis.

a southern hemisphere storm would be a more interesting pattern, from outer gas giants inwards, over the

last 2 decades. southern.

but this is an interesing one nonetheless: the storm has grown very dramatically.

making headlines again...

see this week's articles in the journal Nature for stunning imagery and

real sciene (there are 2 articles, the other one is here)

So.....another planet in our solar system is experiencing a disrupted weather pattern in it's northern hemisphere.What a coincidence...

Is anybody keeping an eye on the other planets and their northern hemispheres??

Thanks for posting this information Anon.

If you are implying anything to do with a comet, note said comet was BELOW the elliptical plane, and inside the orbital circumference of Jupiter at that time, Saturn is nearly twice as far away from the sun as Jupiter, FAIL!
