I've mentioned that Venus, with its obscuring sepia clouds, is one of the most boring worlds you'll ever see from space. That is, unless you're looking in the ultraviolet, in which case the dazzling complexity of its noxious, high-pressure, thoroughly greenhouse effected atmosphere is plain to see. Read more here.

It looks quite lovely, all marbleized like that - hmm, I feel like I should say something about Venus being immortalized in marble before, but I can't think of anything good - or even moderately bad, so I'll just float off into space for now~
