Storm on Saturn is a Stunning View
I happened across this article the other day on Facebook. It drew me in because of the stunning image! The storm on Saturn is hauntingly beautiful. It is also massive!
Check out the full article below:
It is interesting that this massive storm is stuck on Saturn’s northern pole. They say it is because of the strong winds constantly blowing north on the planet. This is the first time we have been able to take a sunlit image of the pole. Space is so amazing and beautiful!
Researchers were stunned to see this storm and compared it to a hurricane on Earth, except this one on Saturn is much larger-scale.
