I didn't know about this strange "hexagon" region on Saturn where the storm is located- has held its hexagonal shape in rotation for 20+ years (since Voyager). Bizarre!
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.
