Zoom on rotating Saturn

This video shows the Hubble observations of Saturn in June 2018. Hubble observed the ringed planet several times over the course of 20 hours, which allowed it to see some changes in the wind patterns in Saturn’s atmosphere. These changing patterns are most visible in the region surrounding the northern pole.
