double-eyed vortex at venus south pole

double-eyed vortex at venus south poleThe Venus Express probe, orbiting that planet since 2006, has sent back images that reveal a vortex at the south pole that shifts its shape every 24 hours. A recent article on the Signs of the Times website reveals that this 1,200 mile vortex is more than just a spinning circle; this Vortex is detected in “S” and “8” shapes. The vortex is not poised directly over the south pole, but instead its center is consistently located approximately three degrees of latitude away, and it drifts around the pole, completing a circuit every five to 10 days. These findings suggest the atmospheric dynamics at Venus’ southern pole are more complex than scientists thought.” A one minute video of the Vortex of Venus provides the viewer with a nice visual.
