This NASA/ESA/ASI Cassini-Huygens spacecraft narrow-angle camera view of Saturn's southern polar region features a bright white spot, or storm, surrounded by faint, darker swirls of clouds.
The image was taken on 22 July 2004, from a distance of 6.7 million kilometres from Saturn, through a filter sensitive to wavelengths of infrared light. The image scale is 39 kilometres per pixel. Contrast was slightly enhanced to bring out features in the atmosphere.
