Daytime lightning on Saturn during one of the biggest storms the ringed planet has ever seen has been captured by Cassini

Close up

The bright blue dot on the image shows a powerful lightning strike and Cassini spotted eight lightning strikes



The energy from the visible flashes of lightning could have spiked about 3 billion watts over a second - equal to some of the strongest and most powerful lightning flashes recorded on Earth.

The storm which resulted in the powerful lightning strike is the longest-lived storm ever recorded on the planet, beginning in December 2010 and lasting for an incredible 200 days. It ended in late June last year
