A composite of images taken over the past eleven years showing the changing appearance of Saturn from its southern summer (top left) to northern summer (bottom right.) The images cover the period 2004 to 2015. Lots of interesting changes can be seen such as the bluish cast of the hemisphere tilted away from the Sun, and how this vanishes when that hemisphere becomes sunlit (due to high altitude aerosols reacting with sunlight.) Also the great 2011 storm is well seen and its aftermath. The images also form stereo pairs for 3D viewing.
