Pieces of Space
Every day a new piece of Space with its history. All images belong to their owners, usually NASA.
Acquiring its first sunlit views of far northern Saturn late last year, the Cassini spacecraft’s narrow-angle camera recorded this stunning image of the vortex at the ringed planet’s north pole. 
The false color, near-infrared image results in red hues for low clouds and green for high ones, causing the north-polar hurricane to take on the appearance of a rose. Enormous by terrestrial hurricane standards, this storm’s eye is about 2,000 kilometers wide, with clouds at the outer edge traveling at over 500 kilometers per hour.
