Saturn polar storm March 26th

Imaged Saturn March 26th in good seeing, have extensive data in 685nm-Pass IR, R and RGB all data has been uploaded to the PVOL data base. These data cover just over an hour of Saturn rotation.

I note that the character of the polar storm changes significantly depending on the wavelength. In IR it is characterized by an extensive bright linear feature, in places a chain of individual bright spots while elsewhere it seems to be continuous extending virtually from limb to limb at approx Lat+65 degrees. While the R & RGB data from this session show a very different storm character with a large bright feature centered at approx Lat+70.8 L3 100.7 along with a small bright concentrated cell at approx Lat+75.7 L3 26.7 this particular feature is very close to the hexagon.
I have attached my IR, R and RGB animations which all show various aspects of the polar storm.

Regards
Trevor
