Like in the Earth, there are tornado and cyclone in Saturn.
For the first time, a giant storm that formed near the north pole of Saturn rose up to 10 times that of the previous conditions. Strength equivalent to that detected a giant cyclone in the southern part of the planet.
Diameter of cyclone is estimated to about 120 kilometers. Vortex wind is moving at a speed 530 kilometers per hour, or twice the strength of the strongest storms on Earth. “This is a giant storm, hundreds of times more powerful than the largest giant hurricanes on Earth,” said Kevin Baines, a scientist involved in the Cassini mission in Propulsion Laboratory Jet.
The discovery of a number of storms in the north pole or south pole shows the dynamics of the planet’s atmosphere above the surface. In the cyclone is also possible that there could be a giant lightning machine control the weather on Saturn. The scientists predict, hurricanes are formed by the flow of heat is released from the liquid surface to evaporate.
How it works similar to the possibility of storms that formed in the Earth from the water droplets are collected to form a thick cloud. form a giant cyclone at Saturn is unique because the outside like a wake hexagonal or hexagon. The cause remains a mystery until now.
