Saturn's "spokes" are lightning storms

A little research on Saturn’s seasonal ring-spokes has linked them with thunderstorms.

The article walks through some interesting transformations done during the research, such as projecting Voyager images of the rings as if they were polar. Lots of fascinating stuff on how the rings (& spokes) go together & work.
