New Planets
61Virb
12/14/09

 

This image from a simulation of atmospheric flow shows temperature patterns on one of the newly discovered planets (61Virb), which is hot enough that it glows with its own thermal emission. A movie of the simulation is posted at the bottom of this story, showing global atmospheric flow for one full orbit of the planet around its star.
