"In January and March 2009, astronomers used NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to record Saturn while its rings were edge-on. The result was a rare view of the giant planet's nearly symmetrical auroral shows, seen at both poles simultaneously. It takes Saturn almost 30 years to orbit the sun, and the opportunity to image both poles occurs only twice during that time. After processing the ultraviolet data, NASA released the image on Feb. 15." - Excerpt from Hubble Captures Saturn's Double Light Show.
The grounding for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying structure and mechanism of a planetary ring as explicated with its hypothetical construct based on the UVS model, elucidated its delusional observation that has been rendering it as mysterious phenomenon. Thus, its cognitive paradox could be meticulously resolved, and all the related natural phenomena were then qualitatively analysed in the conceptual frameworks of UVS by inductive reasoning for explicating with their empirical evidence to establish their qualitative predictions with abductive reasoning.
See the UVS topic on "Overviews of the UVS research" that elaborates on the grounded theory methodology for the evaluations of natural phenomena.
From the UVS perspective, the intensity of a polar vortex of viscous matter is affected by its mass, rotating speed, axis tilt, revolving speed, and the precession effect of the suspended spheroid wobbling in its primary two-axis spin.
Perceivably, an invisible flattened atmospheric pause layer that segregates two visible atmospheric layers, would render the phenomenon of a planetary ring. If a pair of nested polar vortex with an invisible atmospheric pause layer are opened from both the polar regions till they touch its equatorial plane, they would form as an innermost planetary ring.
If the vortical motion of a precessing gas giant is intensified sufficiently to rotate at extremely high speed, it would glow like a star. This suggests that the effect of thermodynamics, is caused by vortical motion of the celestial object, which is impelled by its external vortical system.
UVS predicates that aurora glow is caused by the electric current generated by the dynamo effect in magnetohydrodynamics of vortically consolidated plasma.
See the UVS topic on "Polar aurora" for more illustrations and further elaboration.
The image below on left most is the polar vortex of Saturn, and literally hundreds of storm clouds encircle the pole, appearing as dark spots in this infrared spectrometer thermal image.
From the UVS perspective, each of these storms is a harmonic unisonal vortex impelled by the precession effect of Saturn.
See the UVS topic on "The hexagonal-like cloud structure of Saturn" that elaborates on how its cloud bands are caused by a nested polar vortex pair. See also an externally linked topic on "Vortex alley of Saturn".
"The phenomenon is somewhat periodic at 28.5-year intervals, when Saturn's northern hemisphere tilts most toward the Sun. The following is a list of recorded sightings; years with spots generally considered to be part of the cycle are 1876, 1903, 1933, 1960, and 1990." - Excerpt from Wikipedia on "Great White Spot".
Based on the UVS model, the Great White Spot on Saturn is a periodically resonated satellite free vortex cluster impelled by a polar vortex of Saturn with the precession effect of its axial tilt.
See the UVS topics on "Tidal bore" that elaborates on tidal bore events were triggered periodically with an annual precession effect of the Earth, "Tornado" that elaborates on how the axial tilt of Earth could have occasionally triggered a chain of tornado cluster on Earth, and "The vortices of Jupiter" that illustrates how jet streams on Jupiter drives similar vortex clusters in its nested atmosphere. See also externally linked reports on "Moonquakes" that reported on a regular monthly pattern of moonquakes on the Moon, and "Jupiter and Io Observe Each Other" that suggests moon Io undergoes tides and earthquakes on a 42-hour cycle as it orbits Jupiter.
Based on the UVS model, all celestial objects are manifested by their vortical systems, and they are impelled by their spheroidal unisonal vortices that encapsulate them. The flattened nested polar vortex pairs of a celestial object manifest its ring system.
From the UVS perspective, in a comparative analysis for planetary ring system on a larger scale, the asteroid belt and the Kuiper belt are the vortical ring systems of the dual-core barycenter of the Solar System (BOTSS).
UVS predicates that the ring system of a celestial object are vortically formed by resonated motion of the nested celestial object with its flattened nested polar vortex pair.

Disclaimers: The treatise of Universal Vortical Singularity (UVS) in its epistemological paradigm shift, is fundamentally unconventional. Its hypotheses based on a generally unheard-of UVS model, bound to have shortcomings, loose ends, and errors. Many details and assumptions in its propositions have yet to be further researched, probed, evaluated, validated, or verified. Its implicit explanations are for casual understanding of the UVS topics presented in the UVS worldview, so if any term or statement is offensive in any manner or from whatsoever perspectives, is most regretted. Links to other sites do not imply endorsement of their contents; apply appropriate discretion whenever necessary. For whatsoever reasons, at times the viewing for some of its contents could helplessly experience text corruptions, disorganized content layouts, missing images, failed animations, and some external links simply had ceased to exist.
Viewing tips: Despite the presentations of the UVS web pages has went through much accommodation for their viewings on smart phones, they are not very friendly to smaller low resolution mobile devices. It is therefore recommended to access and view the UVS contents with a system device that at least has a larger high definition screen, such as a larger smart phones, an android tablet, or an iPad. For the best experiences, use a MS Windows based PC or computer system to browse with Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox that is Java enabled for its interactive applets. (Such as Java Applet of Moiré pattern, JPL Small-Body Database Browser, and Planet Finder.)
