We were thinking that the cyclonic storms here on Earth were monstrous!  HA, laughs Saturn!  You bitches ain’t seen nothin’ yet!  (Alright, there was not that level of raucous and rude outburst…).  The gazes into the goings on of the activities beyond our world are becoming more and more exciting, and our satellite imagings are capturing more spectacular scenes at every shot!

The assistance of The Cassini Space Probe continues to prove beneficial, as it is delivering more and more awe-inspiring images of Saturn.  After having been deployed from Earth in October of 1997, Cassini arrived at our solar system’s sixth world during 2004.  It actually is a dual space probe called Cassini-Huygens, which was used to study Saturn, along with it’s largest moon, Titan.

Upon reaching Saturn, Cassini has taken amazing photos of activities occurring within the atmosphere of Saturn.  The recent spectacle is the sight of a gigantic storm that is swirling at the northern polar region of the planet.  This hurricane-like feature is estimated to be 1,250 miles in diameter, with winds at it’s outer regions reaching speeds up to 330 miles per hour!  Imagine something like that during our hurricane season!

The images taken by Cassini show a deep-reddish, swirling shape.  It is encircled by green loops, which give the red area the depiction of the storm’s eye.  This eye area is estimated to be roughly 1,250 miles wide!  Amazingly, during 2006, the Cassini space probe captured images of an even larger cyclonic vortex within Saturn’s atmosphere!
