Space Titbits

Some interesting space stuff just spotted – double vortex spotted at Venusian south pole by Venus Express as well as imagery from Venus Expresses first orbit released by the ESA.

Also Saturn now has nine new moons discovered by a team using the Subaru 8.2-meter telescope. The Planetary Society blog post goes on to say:

If you’re keeping score, Jupiter is stil in the lead with 63 moons, but Saturn is running a close second now with 56. Uranus has 27 known moons and Neptune has 13, but both of those planets almost certainly have a lot more than anyone has spotted yet.
