Saturnian Storm

Back in mid-December, amateur astronomers discovered an enormous new storm on Saturn. The Cassini spacecraft captured this image early in the storm’s history (it now stretches farther around the planet). The fluid dynamics of Saturn’s atmosphere are incredibly complex and well beyond our current understanding, but we can certainly appreciate the majesty of a swirling, turbulent storm half the size of our entire planet.
