Go Back

Cloudscapes A collage of images revealing the details of Saturn's turbulent cloud tops. These views were all captured by the Cassini spacecraft during the last week of February, 2013. Many of them show the same spot as seen through filters sensitive to different wavelengths of light. I built the color picture from three images that were shot through red, blue and green visible light filters. These views are unaltered, except for some small contrast enhancements and the removal of noise.
