In 2012, after the 2010/2011 Great White Spot (GWS), amateur observations made it possible to follow the evolution of the “GWS zone” centered around 41° planetographic north latitude, in particular the regions where the northern and southern tails of the GWS had developed. We also make a correlation between Saturn Electrostatic Discharge (SED) observations and a bright NNTB (North North Temperate Band) re-occurring spot.

In 2013, two years after the dramatic events of the Great White Spot (GWS), amateur astronomers continued to follow the evolution of the “GWS zone” centered around 41° planetographic on Saturn. They

Deep winds beneath Saturn’s upper clouds from a seasonal long-lived planetary-scale storm
TLDR
Observations of a storm at northern latitudes in the peak of a weak westward jet during the beginning of northern springtime, in accord with the seasonal cycle but earlier than expected, and triggered a planetary-scale disturbance that circled Saturn but did not significantly alter the ambient zonal winds.
A giant thunderstorm on Saturn
TLDR
Observations of a giant thunderstorm at planetocentric latitude 35° north that reached a latitudinal extension of 10,000 kilometres about three weeks after it started in early December 2010, which developed an elongated eastward tail with additional but weaker storm cells that wrapped around the whole planet by February 2011.
