In a span of four years, the hexagon formation on the Northern hemisphere of Saturn turned from blue to gold. The changing color baffles NASA scientists as they struggle to understand what caused the drastic changes in Saturn's surface.

What I find interesting is that the seasons of Saturn are 7 years long. This could be a possible explanation for the colour change.

Scientists think the shift from a bluish colour to a golden one may be due to more aerosols being produced through reactions involving sunlight and the atmosphere.

Beautiful. I wish we could get live images around the clock of this.

Being that everything in the universe is connected I wonder if this will change weather patterns here on earth. If it did would they tell us about it.
