Saturn hurricane snapped by Cassini craft

The pic is awesome!  Even though it is false colored.  

So, if I read this right, every 29 years the "season" changes on Saturn?

When Cassini first arrived, the north pole was in darkness; it was winter in the planet's 29-Earth-year annual cycle.

Now it has taken some of its first sunlit images of the pole, which has not been seen since the Voyager 2 craft last sent pictures on its fly-by in 1981.
