A massive storm on Neptune just did something unexpected

December 30th, 2020

Neptune, the frigid world that lives past Saturn and Uranus, has been known to host large storms in its atmosphere.

Temperatures of over 3,000C, oceans of lava, and supersonic winds terrorize the planet’s surface, while the intense heat vaporizes rock that then rains down from above. The planet is tidally locked to its …
