The 3D atmosphere simulations utilized here suggest for both planets, HD 189733b (left) and HD 209458b (right) in Fig. 1, a distinct day–night difference of ≈500 K in the upper atmosphere. The local gas temperature, T gas , is independent on longitude, ϕ, in the inner (deeper), high-pressure part of the atmosphere for p gas > 5 bar in both giant gas planets.
