A Rose Bigger Than England

The eye of Saturn's North Polar Storm. It's 2,000 km across. Puts things in perspective.

I originally claimed this was bigger than the Earth, but that's not so. The eye of the storm is merely continental in scale. The entire north polar storm of Saturn is, however, bigger than the Earth. It's also hexagonal, which is cool by an standard.
