Do other planets have winter storms?
I’m heeding the warnings police to stay off the roads and taking a snow day from work.
As I sit here in pain after a few hours of shoveling, I’m wondering.
Is the phenomena of falling snow unique to our plant or does it happen elsewhere. Do alien children have snow days too? Is this a universal problem throughout the universe?
Those questions may not be completely answered anytime soon but there’s evidence of snow in another region of our solar system.
About 1,000 miles above Saturn’s icy moon Enceladus (en-SELL-uh-duss), the Cassini spacecraft captured what could be the first picture of alien snow. Check it out at http://www.nasaimages.org/luna/servlet/detail/nasaNAS~20~20~120738~227440:Cassini-s-Bold-Look-at-Enceladus
