    "At the equator, summer highs can reach 70 degrees Fahrenheit (about 20 Celsius). But in the middle latitudes, where the observations disclosed Thursday were taken, temperatures range from about 32 degrees F at summer noon to overnight lows of -75 F (-60 C)."

    umm...i know i'm a fairly large guy, but that seems a tad small for swell...still pretty cool tho. the patterns in the pics do seem consistent w/ water flow, at least as it's observed here on earth.
