Thunderstorms from the ISS, burning camera, the shadow play of Saturn

Three images of space subjects. The first is an animation of thunderstorms off the coast of Sumatra. It was made recently by the Space Storm Hunter instrument installed on the ISS. How, I think, it is possible to guess from the name, the main purpose of the instrument is the study of storm and thunderstorm activity on the Earth.

The second image is also an animation. It is made up of frames taken from the memory card of the Bill Ingalls camera. His camera became famous because it burned during the launch of the Falcon 9 rocket. What is interesting, even when it was engulfed in flames, it still continued to shoot.

Finally, the last image was taken from the archive of the Cassini mission. On it you can see two types of shadows on the surface of Saturn. The first left by his rings. The photo was taken on December 6, 2007. At that time, Saturn was turned toward the Sun with its southern hemisphere, and it illuminated the south side of its rings. Accordingly, the shadows of the rings fell on the northern hemisphere.

At the giant's north pole you can also see the elongated shadow left by his companion Tethys.Tefiya itself is located below and to the left of the center of the frame. Also on the image you can see other ice moons of Saturn - Dione (in the foreground on the right side of the frame) and Enceladus (in the background on the right side of the frame). In the southern hemisphere of a giant, a storm is visible.
