NASA has moved into extra-solar planetary weather forecasting. Well, mapping, but one has to start somewhere. Researchers using the agency's Spitzer infrared space telescope have mapped the weather patterns of two extremely hot, distant planets. The May 9th edition of Nature carries a description of the winds on the surface of …

They're not too good at converting between imperial and SI units... remember the mixup with the Mars satellite that put it in the planet?
Dumbing down much?
Thanks for clarifying that the light from Windy takes 60 years to reach us and that it's 60 light-years away. Could someone clarify for me how long it takes the light to get from Spicy at 279 light-years away?
