PostSubject: Saturn's Giant Storm   Fri Nov 18, 2011 1:23 pm

I am glad we don't have Saturn's storms.

The storm started as a tiny spot in a single image almost one year ago, on Dec. 5, 2010, through its subsequent growth into a storm so large it completely encircled the planet by late January 2011.

The monster storm, which extended north-south approximately 9,000 miles (15,000 kilometers), is the largest seen on Saturn in the past two decades and is the largest by far ever observed on the planet from an interplanetary spacecraft.

The storm's 200-day active period also makes it the longest-lasting planet-encircling storm ever seen on Saturn.
