Dramatic composition here: http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/multimedia/imag...1/N00178199.jpg

I'm surprised this sequence hasn't (yet) tempted any of our colour experts.

Don't consider myself a 'color expert' by any means but here is an attempt using the guidelines Emily posted some time ago. http://planetary.org/explore/topics/imagin...al_rgb_pse.html
The final image looked a little lifeless and cold so I took the luminescence out of it and warmed it up a bit using a photo filter. The rings appear wavy and I wonder if thats an artifact rather than an embedded moonlet effect.

False-color RBG[MT3,MT2,CB2] composite massively contrast-enhanced to show cloud turbulence details. There is still a little IR bright patch just above the turbulence region. Maybe a new upwelling for the Serpent Storm?
