Scientists have found that a giant storm 15,000 kilometres in width and 300,000 kilometres long churned up the northern hemisphere of the planet. Saturn's atmosphere is believed to consist of a series of layers of different types of gas, with the pressure and temperature increasing as you move closer to the core. The storm featured vertical winds of 500 kilometres per hour, reaching hundreds of kms down into Saturn's hot lower atmosphere and scooping up water vapor. The water vapor froze and was detected as water ice.
