    UNDATED (CNN) -- NASA has captured what a hurricane looks like on Saturn.

    NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured these images of a massive storm system swirling around Saturn's north pole.
    It's much bigger and stronger than the hurricanes we see on Earth.

    Scientists say the eye is about 12,050-miles wide. That's 20 times larger than the average hurricane eye on Earth.

    Thin, bright clouds at the outer edge of the hurricane are traveling at 330-miles-per-hour.
