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

Photographer Stuart Palley's summer evenings are spent chasing wildfires in Southern California. With fire season starting earlier than usual this year, he tells TIME LightBox how he learned to handle the heat. "I setup my tripod and made images as the fire danced vertically into the air, inexorably marching forward, towards more homes," he said. (Photo by @stuartpalley) See the story on

A spate of wildfires in southern California burned at least 30 homes and even forced the evacuation of the San Onofre nuclear power plant, authorities said on May 14. Numerous fires have broken out in the region in the past days fueled by near-record temperatures, hot winds and a landscape left parched by severe drought.

Staying Alive! The spokes in Saturn's rings continue to be active and Cassini scientists continue to study them in order to unravel their mysteries. The spokes, visible near the center of the image, appear bright against the dense core of the B ring, which is the darkest section of the rings shown here in silhouette. Conditions favorable to the production of spokes are expected to wane as Saturn approaches its northern summer solstice. Scientists are eager to monitor the transition, the timing of which could yield valuable insight into the mechanisms that form these intriguing and ethereal features.
