Saturns active rings:
Cassini’s decade-long mission made it possible to watch changes in Saturn’s dynamic ring system. The spacecraft discovered propeller-like formations, witnessed the possible birth of a new moon and observed what may be one of the most active moons on Saturn.
Cassini spacecraft and a European Observatory based telescope tracked the growth of a giant storm in Saturn's northern hemisphere that is so powerful it stretches around the entire planet.
