Illustration for article titled Saturns Atmosphere Is A Modern Art Sensation

This isn't a newly-discovered Rothko painting or some kind of abstract masterpiece — it's the atmosphere of Saturn, photographed four different times on the same day. The Cassini space probe used different filters to show the storms in the planet's atmosphere in different lights. (The color is arbitrary, but gorgeous.) Click to enlarge. It reminds me of the pop art masterpiece NASA created with UV solar images a while back. [Riding With Robots]
