Winds on Neptune
Neptune’s roaring winds blow many times stronger than the worst hurricanes on Earth, reaching 1,500 mph (2,414 kph). Scientists think that heat escaping from the planet’s rocky interior could cause convection in the atmosphere. Along with the planet’s rapid rotation (roughly 16 hours), this spreading of heat could spawn the record-breaking winds and giant storms on the blue planet.
Lightning on Saturn
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has spotted an electrical storm as large as the continental United States on Saturn, with lightning bolts that are 1,000 times stronger than those on Earth. They detected the charged
storm in Saturn’s southern hemisphere, an area labeled “storm alley.” The storm stretches 2,175 miles (3,500 kilometers) from north to south.
Storms on Jupiter
The biggest storm in the solar system is the Great Red Spot, a hurricane that’s more than double the width of Earth with 350-mph (563 kmh) winds.
Rain on Venus
In Venus, it rains sulphuric acid
