At http://phys.org/print346519189.html … the search for water continues. We now have former lakes in craters – and two episodes of water related activity on Mars.

At http://phys.org/print346509807.html … scientists say they have found a warm layer in the atmosphere of Venus – and they are talking about 20 to 40 degrees warmer than expected. This is not to be sniffed at as CAGW alarmists on Earth are thinking just 2 degrees is apocalyptic.

Anjother oddity is that the upper atmosphere of Venus is warmer in the morning than it is in the evening (after the Sun has been out to play). Venus, however, rotates very slowly and a day lasts the equivalent of 116 earth days. During the equally long nights the upper atmosphere cools – or that is what is supposed to happen. Why is it warmer in the morning hours?
