Watch: Massive Hurricane on Saturn

A A

Amazing video from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has provided scientists with the first close-up, visible-light views of a behemoth hurricane swirling around Saturn’s north pole. Winds were measured at 300 miles per hour, which is four times Hurricane force. A Saturn hurricane differs from an earth hurricane because it is locked to Saturn’s north pole.
