The great white storm of 2010/11 on the planet Saturn was captured using video techniques. Processed using AviStack v2 and MaximDL. This is the most dramtic event seen in my experience, which reaches back to the 1960's! Tethys and its shadow can also be seen at the bottom of the planet, a mere white and dark speck, and the moon Dione below the left side of the rings.
