The spinning vortex of Saturn’s north polar storm resembles a deep red rose of giant proportions surrounded by green foliage in this false-color image from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. Measurements have sized the eye at a staggering 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) across with cloud speeds as fast as 330 miles per hour (150 meters per second).
This image is among the first sunlit views of Saturn’s north pole captured by Cassini’s imaging cameras. When the spacecraft arrived in the Saturnian system in 2004, it was northern winter and the north pole was in darkness. Saturn’s north pole was last imaged under sunlight by NASA’s Voyager 2 in 1981; however, the observation geometry did not allow for detailed views of the poles. Consequently, it is not known how long this newly discovered north-polar hurricane has been active.
The images were taken with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Nov. 27, 2012, using a combination of spectral filters sensitive to wavelengths of near-infrared light. The images filtered at 890 nanometers are projected as blue. The images filtered at 728 nanometers are projected as green, and images filtered at 752 nanometers are projected as red. In this scheme, red indicates low clouds and green indicates high ones.
The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 261,000 miles (419,000 kilometers) from Saturn and at a sun-Saturn-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 94 degrees. Image scale is 1 mile (2 kilometers) per pixel. The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging operations center is based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.

There’s Only One President In This Picture, And It’s Not Obama
by Tammy on April 29, 2013
This picture says it all, doesn’t it? The difference between Bush and Obama made clear. And while I have serious political issues with George W. Bush (actually, the entire Bush family), I think he’s an inherently decent man, and this pic illustrates that strength of Bush’s and the complete void of decency in Obama. Check out the look on the Jerk’s face, he’s deeply uncomfortable, as though he’d rather be somewhere else.
You see, for a MalNar (Malignant Narcissist) they have no idea how to engage other people (and they certainly have no interest in doing so) when it can’t be turned around into something about them. Obama has nothing to give anyone, his primary concern is himself. Bush, on the other hand, well, he appreciates and understands that young woman and her sacrifice. In this picture there is only one president, and it’s not Obama. Gateway Pundit notes Bush invited his friend, wounded warrior Melissa Stockwell, to say the Pledge of Allegiance at his library dedication this past week.
Is that a red tie or his thorax because his belt is too tight? Its over RINO, buy a red suit and a bell for the upcoming Christmas season..
Look its peers (the Brit with his head up his rectum), or martin batshit (the muzzie dude), or tours (the sissy Black Boy), maybe chrissy (everyone knows chrissy)? davey scrotum (you know the sissy boy that wanted the bombers to be southern white boys)
Interesting tidbit on Scrotumen.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sirota
Sirota is a Slavic last name. In Russian, “сирота” means “orphan”. He-he-he. and he more than likely is..
