Two frame blink animation of two MethanoVision [MT3,MT2,CB2] composites from June 13, 2011. Some neat storm structures. It is subtle, but a counterclockwise motion can be seen in the left swirl looking at the inner cloud motions.

June 14, 2011 image. Not this might be similar (1 or two rotations?) to the view seen above. Note a new upwelling to the W of the bright little (cute!) cloud swirl.

If so, that makes three seperate upwellings in a line.

Oo, now they're getting all fancy with their camera angles. I assume that they did that technically to take advantage of the diagonal of their square FOV being 1.4 times longer than the path straight across...but it doesn't hurt that it looks cool!!

Until someone makes an animation of this mutual event, here's a quickly trown together cross-eyed 3D view of the encounter.

I had lunch with Carolyn Porco a couple of weeks ago and asked her about these "tourist" photos - i.e., was there valuable scientific data being obtained or was it sightseeing? She said that she actually has quite a fondness for these kinds of beautiful images. They add so much to the perception of the Saturn system as a "place," and so they are planned even though there is really no scientific data to be gleaned from them. I suspect that the positive PR impact gained from these sightseeing photos certainly is worth the hydrazine to aim the camera.

Until someone makes an animation...

Well, not exactly an animation but a 15 second movie based on the Cassini images.
