Saturn - Brown Ovals in Northern Hemisphere
March 21, 2003
Two brown ovals, at right, some l0,000 kilometers (6,000 miles) across, were found at approximately 40` and 60` latitude in Saturn's northern hemisphere by Voyager l. The photo was taken on November 7, l980, from a range of 7,500,000 kilometers (4,600,000 miles). The polar oval (upper right) has a structure similar to the Saturn red spot located in the southern polar latitudes.
