Stunning Video: Massive storm swirls on Saturn

GREENVILLE, N.C. -

NASA's Cassini Spacecraft captured images of a massive hurricane-like storm swirling about Saturn's north pole.

Analysts say the storm is roughly 20 times the size of Earth hurricanes and its bands swirl at 330 mph! "Wind speeds like that are almost inconceivable," said Storm Team 9 Meteorologist Gannon Medwick. "Hurricanes here on earth typically feature winds of 75 to 150mph."
