Today's image might resemble art. And, well, it is. But nobody painted it.
Need a hint? It's otherworldly art.
Last hint: Art is sometimes born of tempests. See the full image below — and another image that makes all this clear.
This photo is a close-up of a false-color image of a giant, raging storm on Saturn, released yesterday (July 6) by NASA. The tempest, dubbed the Great White Spot, is nearly as wide as Earth — about 6,200 miles (10,000 kilometers). It has a tail of white clouds that encircles all of Saturn. Check out the captions on both the images below for more.
