The observational data for hot Jupiter atmospheres is growing rapidly. HST detections and ground-based upper limits have provided useful constraints on the well known HD209458b. Spitzer has opened a new window for characterizing hot Jupiter transiting planet atmospheres by detecting their thermal emission during secondary eclipse. I will summarize the hot Jupiter atmosphere characteristics than can be robustly inferred from current data. I will discuss the hot Jupiter comparative planetology enabled in the coming year by ground- and space-based telescopes.
