Huge storm on Saturn

The Cassini spacecraft has photographed a huge new storm in Saturn’s northern hemisphere. It was first seen by amateur astronomers but now better views have been obtained by Cassini. The main part of the storm is about 6,000 kilometres (3,600 miles) across, but the whole thing, including the long tail, is about 60,000 kilometres (36,000 miles) long!
