Sci-Fact: Storm Wraps All The Way Around Saturn

And we thought we had bad storms on planet Earth! This is an image captured by the Cassini spacecraft of a storm that erupted on Saturn’s northern hemisphere earlier this year. Saturn’s winds wrapped the tempest around the planet spreading the storm an estimated 180,000 miles; the storm is putting out a ton of white noise, a sure sign that there is some serious electrical activity going on beneath those clouds.

Tut-tut. It looks like rain.
