NASA releases photo of clouds on Saturn

(CNN) – NASA has released images of massive clouds formations on Saturn.

The space agency described the appearance of the clouds as “strokes from a cosmic brush.”

Experts say the unique undulations are caused by the wavy way that fluids interact in the planet’s atmosphere.

Neighboring cloud bands can move at differing speeds and directions, causing turbulence when they meet.

The images were taken on May 18th.
