Across the vast expanse of the solar system, the sun's rays stretch outward beyond the blue Earth to other worlds. From the crimson dust storms of Mars to the dense, churning storms of the gas giants, each planet has its own chemical composition, axial tilt, orbit, seasons and unique weather patterns. Winters can last decades on some planets, while surfaces on other worlds are hot enough annually to melt lead and are drenched in sulfuric acid rainfall. Take a look at the extreme weather of these distant worlds in our solar system.
