New Mars Gully Channel Spotted By Nasa Orbiter

Red Dwarf Star Artist’s depiction of the powerful flare that erupted from the red dwarf star EV Lacertae in 2008. Unlike Earth, Venus lacks a magnetic field to deflect powerful solar outbursts — as can be seen in this NASA-created image, a still from the video “Dynamic Earth: Exploring Earth’s Climate Engine.” This vertigo-inducing, false-color image from NASA’s Cassini mission highlights the storms at Saturn’s north pole. The angry eye of a hurricane-like storm appears dark red while the fast-moving hexagonal jet stream framing it is a yellowish green
