SUMMARY: This image of Saturn's southern pole was taken by Cassini on July 13, when the spacecraft was 5.1 million km (3.2 million miles) away from the planet. It was taken using a filter sensitive to infrared light, and shows swirls and fingers of clouds racing around the pole. The dark spot surrounded by concentric rings of clouds marks the south pole.

I noticed in the Cassini Huygens animation of the new moon they have found, there is a comet-like tail in the bottom left of one of the frames. ! Any answers to what it is (or is is a cosmic particle as described to me by Antoniseb recently?)
