Quote:Beautiful presentation and quite informative. Good hunting this week! This website is currently living up to its name for my locale!One question: going from 2012 to 2013, there is more red in the northern hemisphere - is that better seeing/cam/imaging/luck or do you (and others) think it a real change in the atmosphere of Saturn?
