Space Game! Where in the Solar System is Destination Ten? (day 3)

Hey Space Bloggers!

Sorry about the interruption, but it was worth it right!  What did you think of the exploding star? (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just go back one post to Special Edition: SUPERNOVA.)

And now back to Destination Ten.  Ready for your next clue? D10 wants to tell you himself, so in the cosmic words of Destination Ten (I just helped with the spelling), here’s your next clue.

If you read my Day2 limmeriddle you’ve probably figured out that I’m practically a planet, except for the small detail that I don’t orbit the sun. And then, if you hovered over my photo (not my best side, but still rather attractive if I do say so myself) you discovered that my biggest claim to fame is –ta, daaa–I have an atmosphere. That detail got Earth scientists all excited. So excited that about six Earth-years ago they shot a probe right through my hazy outer veil (talk about tickling–sheesh!). That’s how they found out that my air has a lot of nitrogen in it like Earth’s, which got them even more excited. They do have one complaint, though.  They say I’m a little smoggy. But I say, what’s the big deal? So I rain gasoline-like stuff now and then–hey, everyone has a bad air day sometime!

Thanks Destination Ten.  That was very, uh, interesting. Just for that I’ll show your fans a photo of your good side — here you are going around with your little brother Tethys.

Space Bloggers, see you next week  for the exciting conclusion to this edition of SPACE GAME! (unless it’s preempted by another special addition!)
