Lightbulb Eyewall on Saturn


"The [0]Cassini spacecraft recently [1]observed a
hurricane-like storm on the south pole of Saturn. What makes this storm
particularly interesting is that this is the first time that a clearly
defined [2]eyewall has been seen outside of the Earth in the [3]Solar
System. Neither the [4]Great White Spot of Saturn nor the [5]Great Red
Spot of Jupiter have had an observable eyewall. NASA, JPL, and the
Space
Science Institute have released a short [6]movie of the motion around
the
eyewall ([7]mirrored at YouTube)."
