Saturn's hexagon and rings
This true color view of Saturn's north polar region—including the north polar hexagonal cloud pattern—and its rings was taken by Cassini's Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) on 10 October 2013 from a distance of 1,504,561 kilometers. CL1, RED, BL1 and GRN filter images were used to create this image.
