Wissenschaftler haben den allerersten „Regenbogen“ in Space geknippst. Ein sogenannter Glory in der Atmosphäre der Venus. Circle-Rainbow all across fucking Venus.

A rare type of rainbow called a "glory" has been spotted in Venus's atmosphere, the first time such a ring of colour has been imaged on another planet. The glory's shape and size could help solve a decades-old mystery about the hazy planet's makeup.

"A full glory has never been seen before outside of the terrestrial environment," says Wojciech Markiewicz at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Gottingen, Germany, who was part of the team that spotted the glory on Venus.
