NASA's Cassini spacecraft has captured spectacular new views of an enormous hurricane churning around Saturn's north pole. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/4ime The storm's eye, which is about 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) across with cloud speeds as fast as 330 mph (530 kph), resembles a deep red rose surrounded by green foliage in this false-color image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft.

The spinning vortex of Saturn's north polar storm resembles a deep red rose of giant proportions surrounded by green foliage in this false-color image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft. Measurements have sized the eye at a staggering 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) across with cloud speeds as fast as 330 miles per hour (150 meters per second). #NASA #space #science #Saturn #astronomy

Storms on Saturns Northpole.

Staring towards Saturn's north pole By Val Klavans This is a true color view of Saturn's northern hemisphere, taken by the Cassini spacecraft's Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) on October 10, 2013. You can see Saturn's mysterious hexagon on the bottom right.

Amazing new discoveries will increasingly become commonplace as we shift completely into the pure Aquarian Age ...exciting ☀️✨ #cosmos #SacredGeometry #spirituality #astrology #symbolism #metaphysical #newage #news #Googleplus plus.google.com/...

A monster hurricane at Saturn's North Pole. The eye of the cyclone is an enormous 1250 miles across. That's 20 times larger than the typical eye of a hurricane here on Earth. The hurricane is believed to have been there for years.

A New Look at Saturn’s Northern Hexagon - Raw Cassini image captured on 26 Feb. 2013 (NASA/JPL/SSI) Freshly delivered from Cassini’s wide-angle camera, this raw image gives us another look at Saturn’s north pole and the curious hexagon-shaped jet stream that encircles it, as well as the spiraling vortex of clouds at its center. Back in November we got our first good look at Saturn’s north pole in years, now that Cassini’s orbit is once again taking it high over the ringplane.
