    Thumbs up Saturn's Raging Thunderstorm-Lightning 10,000 Times Stronger Than Earth's

    I'm on the Cassini email listing-and I got an email today discussing a monster thunderstorm in Saturn's southern hemisphere that has been raging on for several months. Lightning in this storm is 10,000 times more powerful than Earth's. Keep in mind that Saturn's thunderstorms can reach the size of the U.S.A, or larger.

    You can see photos and hear radio sounds from lightning discharges at this link:
