Cassini: 15 Years of Exploration
This animation shows 'beacons' of hot air seen in the infrared that appeared during a great springtime storm on Saturn from January 2011 to March 2012.
Infrared Hotspots in a Monster Saturn Storm
In the aftermath of a massive storm in Saturn's northern hemisphere, NASA's Cassini spacecraft observed record-setting disturbances in the planet's upper atmosphere, including an unprecedented spike in temperature and a huge increase in the amount of ethylene gas, the origin of which is a mystery.
Saturn Storm Surprises
This movie captured by NASA'S Cassini spacecraft shows a south polar vortex, or a swirling mass of gas around the pole in the atmosphere, at Saturn’s moon Titan. The swirling mass appears to execute one full rotation in about nine hours – much faster than the moon's 16-day rotation period. The images were taken before and after a distant flyby of Titan on June 27, 2012.
Titan's South Polar Vortex in Motion
This artist's concept shows 'tides' on Titan raised by Saturn's gravity, as detected by NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
Squeezing and Stretching Titan
In this movie from NASA's Cassini spacecraft, the gravitational pull of Saturn's moon Prometheus creates patterns in Saturn's F ring.
F Ring Patterns
One of the glittering trails caused by small objects punching through Saturn's F ring is highlighted in this movie from NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
Glittering Trail in Saturn's F Ring
These false-color mosaics from NASA's Cassini spacecraft chronicle the changing appearance of the huge storm that developed from a small spot in Saturn's northern hemisphere.
Encircling a Giant
These two false-color views from NASA's Cassini spacecraft show detailed patterns that change during one Saturn day within the huge storm in the planet's northern hemisphere.
Churning Psychedelia
Patterns that come and go in the course of one Saturn day within the huge storm in the planet's northern hemisphere.
