The changing colors of the 'hexagonal' pattern on the tip of Saturn baffles NASA scientists.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft is currently spending its last year on its mission to observe the ringed planet Saturn. Surprisingly, a comparison of old and new photographs of Saturn's North Pole revealed its changing colors.
Cassini data revealed ocean deep below Dione's icy exterior.
Two lesser photographed among Saturn's moon was captured by Cassini in their orbit near the planet's massive rings.
Like satellites Titan and Enceladus, Saturn's fourth largest moon Dione might also have a subsurface ocean that is estimated to be 65-kilometers deep.
A mysterious ice cloud appeared again on Titan's stratosphere and there is a possibility that the formation process of this mysterious cloud is similar with the ones seen over Earth's poles.
For Cassini's last hoorah, the spacecraft will pass through an unexplored space between Saturn and its rings and will make the closest-ever observations of Saturn, providing new precise insights into the planet's inner structures.
Cassini captured four Saturn days in an amazing video showing the hexagonal odd shape on the planet's north pole and an oval-shaped storm near the northern hemisphere.
The Cassini spacecraft will end its mission on Sept. 2017, but before that, it will perform a series of orbits that will observe the space between Saturn and its rings.
The moon will pass by planets Saturn and Mars early this September and it will be visible in the night sky.
NASA's Cassini probe managed to capture detailed images of sand dunes on Saturn's largest moon, Titan for the first time. The images were taken by using the radar vision of the spacecraft enabling it to peak through the cloudy haze that covers the surface of the moon.
NASA’s Juno spacecraft sends back the first images of Jupiter’s north pole, which shows raging storms on the planet’s surface.
A bright glow on Saturn's B ring was captured by the Cassini spacecraft.
A NASA expert revealed that NASA is thinking of sending a submarine to Saturn's moon, Titan to search for signs of life on its methane ocean.
