A telescope on Earth has spotted huge storms on the planet Uranus
Astronomers using the Keck Observatory in Hawaii have recently seen a number of storms develop on the planet. The new storm is reminiscent of a feature known as the Berg (named because the storm looked like an iceberg sloughing off an ice shelf), which disappeared in 2009, but could even have dated back to NASA’s Voyager probe’s flyby of the planet in 1986.

A 13-year-old Girl Scout in San Francisco recently set up shop outside a marijuana clinic and sold 117 boxes of Girl Scout cookies within two hours. The cookies were such a big hit, she’s been invited back.
