Resum
We investigate the long-term motion of Saturn's north pole hexagon and the structure of its associated eastward jet, using Cassini imaging science system and ground-based images from 2008 to 2014. We show that both are persistent features that have survived the long polar night, the jet profile remaining essentially unchanged. During those years, the hexagon vertices showed a steady rotation period of 10¿h 39¿min 23.01¿±¿0.01¿s. The analysis of Voyager 1 and 2 (1980–1981) and Hubble Spac...
