Two pairs of dark spots, or storms, in Saturn's atmosphere squeeze past each other as they dance around the planet. In this group of four storms, the top left and lower right storms are fringed with white clouds. The image was taken with the Cassini narrow angle camera in the near infrared on 5 May 2004 at a distance of 29.5 million kilometres from Saturn. Image scale is 176 kilometres per pixel. Contrast in the image was enhanced to aid visibility.

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency.
