Description:

An up-close look at Saturn's atmosphere shows wavelike structures in the planet's constantly changing clouds. Feathery striations in the lower right appear to be small-scale waves propagating at a higher altitude than the other cloud features. The image was taken with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on April 14, 2005, through a filter sensitive to wavelengths of infrared light centered at 727 nanometers and at a distance of approximately 386,000 kilometers (240,000 miles) from Saturn. The image scale is 19 kilometers (12 miles) per pixel.
