As part of its routine monitoring of Saturn's atmosphere, Cassini took the photos needed to compose this false-color composite view of the storm reaching across much of the planet's temperate northern latitudes on February 4, 2011. (The view is composed of three images taken through infrared, green, and blue filters.)
