Saturn hurricane snapped by Cassini craft

An enormous hurricane raging at Saturn's north pole has an eye 2,000km (1,250mi) across - big enough to cover the UK 12 times over.

Two excellent chances to see the ISS tonight, at 2101 and 2238, travelling west to east and getting incredibly bright. I'll be off for a walk up the hill behind the house to get a good vantage point, if it stays cloudless this evening.
