There's A Storm On Saturn And People Think It Looks Like A Giant Space Nipple

Damn, Saturn.

Posted on May 9, 2017, at 5:39 p.m. ET

NASA recently captured a remarkable photo of a hexagon-shaped polar jet stream on Saturn.

Our @CassiniSaturn spacecraft captured this pic of Saturn's hexagonal polar jet stream in the sun's reflected light…

"Saturn's hexagonal polar jet stream is the shining feature of almost every view of the north polar region of Saturn," a NASA employee explained on its website. "The region, in shadow for the first part of the Cassini mission, now enjoys full sunlight, which enables Cassini scientists to directly image it in reflected light."

And, well...

why does this look like a giant space tiddy

Space nip

All of us right now:


BuzzFeed News has reached out to NASA about the space boob. (Yes, really. We even used the phrase "space boob" in the email).

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
