Enormous storm on Saturn
Enormous storm on Saturn On 24 December 2010, Cassini captured its first complete photos of a massive storm on Saturn that had already captured the fascination of amateur astronomers. The storm was first noticed on December 5 by the Radio and Plasma Wave Science (RPWS) team on Cassini, who detected its lightning emissions and alerted astronomers. Amateur astronomers photographed it shortly after. NASA / JPL-Caltech / SSI / color composite by Gordan Ugarkovic
