The sun is a very dynamic place, a constantly churning ball of immense energy that can put on dazzling displays of flares, sunspots and the like. But did you know that it also rains there?
Planetaria (formerly The Meridiani Journal) is a chronicle of planetary exploration, both in our own Solar System and beyond. Many continuing discoveries, such as the geysers of Enceladus, the subsurface ocean of Europa, the methane rivers, lakes and seas of Titan, the mountains and glaciers of Pluto, the cold but beautiful deserts of Mars and the thousands of exoplanets orbiting other stars make this an exciting time of exploration and discovery. Planetaria is published by freelance space writer Paul Scott Anderson.
