The solar system presents a dazzling array of alien weather. Venus, the crushing inferno where oceans have boiled off into the sky, and where sulphuric acid rains from the clouds and metallic snows fall on the mountains. Mars - a frigid desert whose oceans are frozen deep within its crust, and where global dust storms rage across the entire planet. But the greatest atmospheres of all are wrapped around the giants - where cyclones the size of Earth rage for centuries on end.
