1. Saturn’s Hex Storm in enhanced color

4 layers: Red, Green, and Blue all represented naturally, with high wavelength VIO in the blues.
The Hexagonal shape of Saturn’s northern polar region still amazes me. Even If these shapes are naturally occurring in fluid dynamics, imagining those same concepts can be applied to the entire northern region of a Gas Giant as large as Saturn is insane.
