A Japanese research group has identified a giant streak structure among the clouds covering planet Venus based on observation from the spacecraft Akatsuki. The team

also revealed the origins of this structure using large-scale climate simulations. The

group was led by Project Assistant Professor Hiroki Kashimura (Kobe University,

Graduate School of Science) and these findings were published on January 9 in Nature Communications.
