The Cassini spacecraft of NASA has lately provided scientists at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena with the first ever close-up of a Saturn hurricane.

Visible-light views of the hurricane whirling around the North Pole of Saturn have been captured. It has been found that the hurricane's eye was some 1,250 miles in width. The high-resolution pictures as well as video have hinted that the hurricane was larger by 20 folds as compared to the average hurricane eye on Earth.

Researchers said that seeing the vortex, they had to take a double take since the same looked very similar to a hurricane on Earth.

The report finds that the hurricane would be studied thoroughly by the team so that they could gain insight into the hurricanes on Earth. Warm ocean water is fed off by these. It is being said that coming across the way water vapour is used by these Saturnian storms would help researchers to know more about the generation and sustainability of terrestrial hurricanes.

"There it is at Saturn, on a much larger scale, and it is somehow getting by on the small amounts of water vapor in Saturn's hydrogen atmosphere", said Cassini imaging team member, Andrew Ingersoll.
