  • Elizabeth Boychuk Stefanowich Saturn's Hexagon - Image Credit: Cassini Imaging Team, SSI, JPL, ESA, NASA - this is the North Pole of Saturn. It is unclear how an unusual hexagonal cloud system that surrounds Saturn's north pole was created, keeps its shape, or how long it will last. Originally discovered during the Voyager flybys of Saturn in the 1980s, nobody has ever seen anything like it elsewhere in the Solar System.

Saturn's Iapetus: Painted Moon- Vast sections of this strange world are dark as coal, while others are as bright as ice.

A leading hypothesis is that the dark material is mostly dirt leftover when relatively warm but dirty ice sublimates.
