The tail of Venus and the weak solar wind - when a planet behaves like a comet by Adonai on September 19, 2013 Measurements obtained with ESA's Venus Express spacecraft have shed new light on the interaction between the solar wind and the second planet from the Sun. During a rare period of very low density solar outflow, the ionosphere of Venus was observed to become elongated downstream, rather like a long-tailed comet.
