pictured above is a gigantic storm brewing on the north pole of saturn (taken by nasa’s cassini spacecraft).  some perspective:

– the eye of hurricanes found on earth usually range from 5 mi (8 km) to over 120 mi (200 km).  the eye of this storm is 1,250 miles (2000 km) wide.

– hurricane katrina reached 175mph (78 m/s).  this hurricane is almost doubling that at 330mph (150 m/s).
