Saturn's southern hemisphere shows dark spots and wisps of high clouds in this image. Note the 'boomerang' shape of the patterns in the mid-latitude bands. The image was taken with the Cassini narrow-angle camera in the near infrared on 8 May 2004, from a distance of 28.1 million kilometres. Image scale of the high resolution image is 168 kilometres per pixel. The image has been enhanced to aid visibility.
