Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, has made some dramatic transformations in recent years, a new study reveals.

Huge belts in the giant planet's atmosphere have changed color, radiation hotspots have faded and flared up again, and cloud levels have thickened and dissolved, all while space rocks have been hurtling into it the gas giant, astronomers said.

It's been 18 years since a huge amount of energy was absorbed into the planet from Shoemaker-Levy 9.  I wonder if that had any effect on this process being observed.

  Imagination is the power in the turn of a phrase.

OK, so no practical chance of Jupiter becoming our second Sun? Or doing worse?

Since we haven't been observing Jupiter for that long with modern equipment this could be normal.

Global warming is happening on every planet in the system according to some researchers.

The sun is also just hot gas, or plasma if you like.

Some say Jupiter is a 'failed star', meaning: not enough helium and/or hydrogen to start nuclear fusion and ignite like a cosmic Christmas tree.

In fact, it isn't even close to being a 'brown star'.

But no doubt Waspie Dwarf has more insightful info concerning that.

So far you are doing a good job on your own.

I can't quite remember where I first saw it, I think it may have been something on you-tube.. But there's plenty of articals out in Google-world regarding interplanetary global warming occuring from Pluto to earth..

And I know now, lol.  But although I think I do quite well using the English language, I sometimes miss out on its subtleties.

Lol, it's "all just hot air!", isn't it.

Anyway, I remember from maybe 20 years ago that there was some 'clairvoyant' English (?) nun who claimed to have 'seen' that Jupiter would some day grow and grow,and then ignite and become a new sun in our solar system.

Some people should just never be allowed to watch scifi movies or read scifi books.

Thanks for the links.

So in essence everybody agrees several planets are warming up, but they do not agree on the connecting factor, unless it's just a coincidence connected with coinciding seasons and weather patterns.
