Hurricane swirls on Saturn's north pole

(CNN/KYTX) - A hurricane on the planet Saturn -- it may sound a little strange, but it's true.  NASA's Cassini Spacecraft captured images of a massive storm system swirling around Saturn's north pole.

It's much bigger and stronger than the hurricanes we see on Earth. Scientists say the eye is about 12,050 miles wide. That's 20 times larger than the average hurricane eye on Earth. Thin, bright clouds at the outer edge of the hurricane are traveling at 330 miles per hour.
