January 15, 2005
This enhanced-color image of the northern hemisphere of Saturn taken by Voyager 1 on November 5, 1980, at a range of 9 million kilometers (5.5 million miles) shows a variety of features in Saturn's clouds. Small-scale convective cloud features are visible in the brown belt, an isolated convective cloud with a dark ring is seen in the light brown zone, and a longitudinal wave is visible in the light blue region.
