The huge storm churning through the atmosphere in Saturn’s  northern hemisphere overtakes itself as it encircles the planet in this  true-color view from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft.This picture,  captured on Feb. 25, 2011, was taken about 12 weeks after the storm  began, and the clouds by this time had formed a tail that wrapped around  the planet. Some of the clouds moved south and got caught up in a  current that flows to the east (to the right) relative to the storm  head. This tail, which appears as slightly blue clouds south and west  (left) of the storm head, can be seen encountering the storm head in  this view.
