Storms on Saturn

This is one of those things. The things I live for. The things that make me glad to be around, if only to have seen them:

Huge 'hurricane' rages on Saturn

Measuring 5,000 miles (8,000km) across, the storm is the first hurricane ever detected on a planet other than Earth.

Scientists say the storm has the eye and eye-wall clouds characteristic of a hurricane and its winds are swirling clockwise at 350mph (550km/h).




Okay, now I'm taking Moby Dick and heading for bed.
