Significant physical, chemical and optical changes are being observed on Venus.
This includes a sharp decrease in the amount of sulfur-containing gases, a
reversal in the areas of light and dark spots and a significant increase in its
overall brightness. One mainstream article on these changes by Kenneth Chang
in the New York Times, 1/28/01, said: [9]

Every time [scientists] take a look [at Venus,] they seem to see something
different, with phenomena appearing or disappearing like the smile of the Cheshire Cat.
In November 1999, researchers from S.R.I. International and Lowell Observatory pointed
the 10-meter Keck telescope on Mauna Kea, Hawaii, toward [the night side of] Venus
for eight minutes and saw the distinctive green glow of oxygen atoms. "It was a total
surprise," said Dr. Thomas G. Slanger, a scientist at S.R.I. and lead author of a paper in
the current issue of Science. [emphasis added]

Though articles on these anomalous energetic increases of Venus have indeed
emerged in the mainstream press, [8] thus far no one in the Western media has
ever combined this data to see it as another function of changes that are
occurring throughout the entire heliosphere.
