Cassini, 'copyright shots'

A spacecraft speeding through the solar system 619,000 miles from Saturn snapped a photo of the ringed planet’s north pole in stark relief.  The new image, taken by the Cassini spacecraft on Dec. 2, 2016, shows Saturn’s strange hexagonal jet stream surrounding the strong hurricane at the pole. 
 
The north pole of Saturn sits at the center of its own domain. Around it swirl the clouds, driven by the fast winds of Saturn. Beyond that orbits Saturn’s retinue of moons and the countless small particles that form the ring.
