NASA continues to share stunning images captured with its Cassini space probe, which has been in orbit around Saturn for the last nine years. The latest mind-blowing shot from Cassini is of a massive, color-enhanced hurricane that has been swirling around the North Pole of Saturn for several years.
The Saturn hurricane is approximately 20 times larger than super storm Sandy that hit the East Coast last October. The hurricane on Saturn is churning up 330 mph winds with a central eye that's 1,250 miles across.
Along with the Saturn images below, check out a video interview with Andy Ingersoll of the Cassini imaging team discussing the Saturn mission and some of the latest pictures to come back from the space probe.
