40455107 story Spectacular New Views of Saturn's Polar Vortex 49 Posted by Soulskill on Wednesday November 28, 2012 @01:17AM from the mind-the-undertow dept. sighted writes "Today the robotic spacecraft Cassini returned some jaw-dropping images of the odd hexagon in the planet's north polar region. The hexagon has been seen before, but the change of season has more fully revealed the feature in visible light. Cassini also zoomed in on the churning vortex at the north pole itself. The south pole features a similar maelstrom."
