Scenes from Space #10

This image was taken by the Cassini spacecraft, which is currently in orbit around Saturn. A lot of people know about Jupiter's large storms - including the Great Red Spot - but not so many know that Saturn has lots of huge storms as well. Storms larger than hurricanes continually dot the upper atmosphere of Saturn, and typically last for months! A view of many storms occurring simultaneously was captured in this image.
