The seasonal variability of Saturn's clouds and weather layer, currently displaying a variety of phenomena (convective storms, planetary waves, giant storms and lightning-induced events, etc.) is not yet fully understood. Variations of Saturn's radiance at 5.2 microns, a spectral region dominated by thermal emission in an atmospheric window containing weak gaseous absorption, contain a strong axisymmetric component as well as large discrete features at low and mid-latitudes that are several…

Amateurs’ contributions to Saturn study during and after the Cassini era
During the Cassini mission around Saturn, amateurs’ observations were useful to follow the evolution of the features observed by Cassini with the Imaging Science Subsystem cameras. It also proved
