  Hexagon and Rings

Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: Saturn's north polar hexagon basks in the Sun's light now that spring has come to the northern hemisphere. Many smaller storms dot the north polar region and Saturn's signature rings, which appear to disappear on account of Saturn's shadow, put in an appearance in the background.
