Saturn’s Record-Setting Storm

Saturn’s 2010 Great White Spot storm has set a new record for the largest atmospheric temperature change ever detected during a storm on the ringed planet. By studying the monstrous disturbance using NASA's Cassini spacecraft, researchers spotted a massive belch of energy that sent temperatures soaring to an unprecedented 150 degrees Fahrenheit above normal in Saturn's stratosphere, accompanied by an enormous release of ethylene gas.
