This image shows dramatic details in the swirling, turbulent bands of clouds in Saturn's atmosphere. Particularly noteworthy is the disturbed equatorial region. The image was taken with the Cassini narrow-angle camera on 10 May 2004, in the spectral region where methane strongly absorbs light. It was taken at a distance of 27.2 million kilometres from Saturn. Image scale of the high resolution image is 162 kilometres per pixel. Contrast in the image was enhanced to aid visibility.
