Saturn "Storm Watch"

This is an approximate true color view of Saturn. Saturn's north polar hexagon stands out prominently while the planet casts a shadow upon its rings.


This composite is made of images that were taken by Cassini's camera system, the Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) on May 04, 2014 and received on Earth May 05, 2014. The camera was pointing toward SATURN at approximately 1,837,403 miles (2,957,013 kilometers) away, and the images were taken using the CB2, BL1, MT3, MT2, CL1 and CL2 filters.
