Saturn's spectacular spokes

RINGSIDE VIEW: This image shows a Cassini spacecraft view of a group of more than a dozen spokes in Saturn's outer B ring. The B ring displays the variation with longitude around the planet, which is characteristic of the spoke-forming region. The large spoke feature above centre is about 5,000 km long and 2,000 km wide.
