Saturn's northern hemisphere is presently a serene blue, more befitting of Uranus or Neptune, as seen in this natural colour image from the NASA/ESA/ASI Cassini spacecraft.
Images obtained using red, green and blue spectral filters were combined to create this colour view.
The images were taken with the Cassini wide-angle camera on 14 December 2004, at a distance of 719 200 kilometres from Saturn. The image scale is about 39 kilometres per pixel.
