Quotes from the news wire:
Our analysis showed that HR 8799e has an atmosphere containing far more carbon monoxide than methane -- something not expected from equilibrium chemistry, we can best explain this surprising result with high vertical winds within the atmosphere preventing the carbon monoxide from reacting with hydrogen to form methane.
Our observations suggest a ball of gas illuminated from the interior, with rays of warm light swirling through stormy patches of dark clouds, convection moves around the clouds of silicate and iron particles, which disaggregate and rain down into the interior. This paints a picture of a dynamic atmosphere of a giant exoplanet at birth, undergoing complex physical and chemical processes.
