Perhaps this will be the start of such an episode, if it is a volcanic plume.Bruce----- Original Message -----From: Richard RosenbergSent: Saturday, August 01, 2009 5:47 PMSubject: Strange Doings in the Solar System; The High Line
Youve probably heard of Jupiters new black spot, a result of a collision with a comet or asteroid. Have any of you seen it?
Now there may have been a similar event on Venus, which has suddenly sprouted a bright patch. Story at http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn17534-mysterious-bright-spot-found-on-venus.html.
Joe Delfausse, myself and maybe a few others are heading to the High Line around 14th Street this evening a little after 8 PM to check out the Moon and Jupiter. For those of you who dont know, the High Line is the remnant of an elevated freight train route that has been converted to an amazing park. Enter at 14th Street near 10th Avenue . http://www.thehighline.org/
