The Cassini Probe has captured a strange looking cyclone on Satan's the North Pole. It appears to be a hexagonal while of gasses moving great speeds. The images were posted on NASA's official page as they explained Cassini's dive. These will be one of the last images that come from Cassini.

The probe was set up on Satan in 1997 and has cost around $3 billion, and it has been a great success. It has captured some impressive photos and footage. It arrived on the planet's surface in 2004 where it has been evolving around Satan and its moons.

Cassini is set to go for its final dives before intentionally plunging into the face of the planet ending its expedition. It will do a series of 22 dives between the inner Saturn ring and the planet itself. Each dive takes around seven days with multiple pictures being sent back to NASA During this period, it will also visit satan's biggest moon Titan.

Through the probe, NASA has learned more about the constant storms on the planet and the rings as well.

"This is it, the beginning of the end of our historical exploration of Saturn," stated Carolyn Porco, the Cassini imaging team lead at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, adding. "Let these images - and those to come - remind you that we've lived a bold and daring adventure around the solar system's most magnificent planet."

NASA has not announced their next course in exploring Satan a planet that they say need more "on hand exploration" to fully understand it.
