The Mangalica, also known as the "sheep-pig" is the last pig breed in existence to have a thick, curly, coat of hair. Even the little ones have them. They were discovered in Hungary in the mid-19th century.

National Geographic's Atlas of the Moons.

While a wonder to behold and with many links to side articles at least for most of the major moons in the Solar System, very annoyingly the only method is to scroll continually downward to get to each planet's system. You must scroll through all of the moons of Earth and Mars before getting to Jupiter's moons. Prepare to have your fingers get very tired before getting to see Pluto's Charon.

Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Like the seashore clings to the sea
Like you'll never get rid of your shadow
Frank, you'll never get rid of me
Let all the others fight and fuss
Whatever happens, we've got us.
Me and my shadow

Me and my shadow
Strolling down the avenue
Me and my shadow
Not a soul to tell our troubles to
And when it's twelve o'clock
We climb the stair
We never knock
For nobody's there
Just me and my shadow
All alone and feeling blue.

Here is another pic showing these planets with the star they are orbiting along with other stars which happened to be within the field:

Image

The star is close to the size of the Sun but is about 17 million years old. The two planets orbit at about 160 and 320 times the distance of the Earth's orbit from the Sun (or about 5 and 11 times further than the distance of Neptune's orbit from the Sun) and weigh in at 14 and 6 times the mass of Jupiter.

New: Mars In 4K

It's animated panoramas with the Ken Burns effect, but it still looks great. Narrator explains how it's done.
The Bad Astronomer with some more details about those pics of a Sun-like star with planets in orbit around it. He included this video showing the speculated circular orbits of those planets around their star. The smaller yellowish circle shows the orbit of Pluto around the Sun

Ghost dogs is a cool name, too bad they're so creepy looking, and probably can't/shouldn't be domesticated.

This long, thin cloud was spotted on July 17 and 19 by the Visual Monitoring Camera (VMC) attached to Mars Express, a satellite that’s been in orbit around Mars since 2004. These images were made possible owing to Mars Express’s elliptical orbit and the VMC’s wide field view, as noted in a European Space Agency press release.


Quote:
The cloud is a recurrent feature on Mars, appearing annually above Arsia Mons, a 12.4-mile-high (20-kilometer) volcano located near the Martian equator. The cloud resembles a volcanic plume, but it’s not associated with any kind of volcanic activity. Composed of water ice, the cloud arises along the volcano’s leeward slope, that is, the side not facing the prevailing winds.

The Arsia Mons Elongated Cloud, or AMEC, as it’s called, can reach about 1,110 miles (1,800 km) in length. Incredibly, it can get big enough to be spotted by telescopes on Earth, according to the ESA.
