NASA has released photos from their Cassini spacecraft that shows the hexagonal storm on Saturn changing color.

Back in 2012 images showed the storm to be a shade of soft blue. However these new images show the storm being a golden color.

Scientists are trying to figure out why the storm has changed color. It may be due to the changing seasons.

The storm is turbulent and unstable and is created by six different jet streams. This storm has been here for perhaps hundreds of years.
