Extended wind forecast

After 4 almost windless months instead of the usual 20 solid knots blowing every second day during winter and spring time, I wondered if there was be a better place for kiting than my neck of the woods. And there is! Gotta check my bank account…  when is the next Virgin Galactic trip to one of those beautiful destinations where SMALL KITES are required?

Hope you all have good winds. If not, join me anytime.

“On other planets

Strong 300 kilometers per hour (190 mph) winds at Venus’s cloud tops circle the planet every four to five earth days.[148] When the poles of Mars are exposed to sunlight after their winter, the frozen CO2 sublimes, creating significant winds that sweep off the poles as fast as 400 kilometers per hour (250 mph), which subsequently transports large amounts of dust and water vapor over its landscape.[149] Other Martian winds have resulted in cleaning events and dust devils.[150][151] On Jupiter, wind speeds of 100 meters per second (220 mph) are common in zonal jet streams.[152] Saturn’s winds are among the solar system’s fastest. Cassini–Huygens data indicated peak easterly winds of 375 meters per second (840 mph).[153] On Uranus, northern hemisphere wind speeds reach as high as 240 meters per second (540 mph) near 50 degrees north latitude.[154][155][156] At the cloud tops of Neptune, prevailing winds range in speed from 400 meters per second (890 mph) along the equator to 250 meters per second (560 mph) at the poles.[157] At 70° S latitude on Neptune, a high-speed jet stream travels at a speed of 300 meters per second (670 mph).[158] (WIKIPEDIA)”
