Here's another spectacular photo from NASA's Cassini space probe, this time of a violent storm swirling over Saturn's north pole.
The image was shot by Cassini yesterday and then slightly enhanced by Universe Today to remove “hot pixels” that occur in long exposures from the spacecraft.
The storm is an approximately 2,500-mile-wide cyclone above Saturn's north polar vortex. See a larger version of the image here and prepare to go “Wow!”
