The Eye of Saturn Like a giant eye for the giant planet, Saturn's great vortex at its north pole appears to stare back at Cassini as Cassini stares at it. Measurements have sized the “eye” at a staggering 1,240 miles (2,000 kilometers) across with cloud speeds as fast as 330 miles per hour (150 meters per second). The image was taken with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on April 2, 2014 using a combination of spectral filters which preferentially admit wavelengths of near-infrared light centered at 748 nanometers. The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 1.4 million miles (2.2 million kilometers) from Saturn and at a Sun-Saturn-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 43 degrees. Image scale is 8 miles (13 kilometers) per pixel. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute #nasa #cassini #saturn #solarsystem #space #planet

“Sand artistry takes a long-handled shovel, a soft touch and skin that can stand up to the sun,” says Lucinda Wierenga (@sandyfeet). She would know: The Texas Instagrammer has spent the past 30 years making sandcastles for a living. Lucinda is part of a community of artists that participate in master-level sand sculpting competitions. They travel to beaches across the United States—and sometimes, around the world—for multiday building events. “A sand sculpture's temporary nature is a large part of its charm,” she says, “and only world-class jerks kick down other people's sandcastles.” For more jaw-dropping sand sculpting, follow @sandyfeet.
