Description

Much like Jupiter, imaging Saturn over two weeks allowed us to make a time-lapse of its cloud-tops.

Notes:

    [li]There is an outbreak near the north pole at 180° longitude.[/li]

    [li]A secondary outbreak is rapidly drifting away eastward from the storm.[/li]

    [li]There appears to be a tiny bright spot between the North Temperate Zone & Belt near 80° longitude on the 1st frame, 60° on the 2nd frame, and 30° on the 3rd frame.[/li]
