Hurricane Ophelia from TRMM: September 11, 2005 1648 Zulu

NASA's TRMM spacecraft observed this view of Hurricane Ophelia on September 11, 2005. At the time the data was taken, the hurricane was a Category 1 hurricane with winds of 70 KT. The cloud cover is taken by TRMM's Visible and Infrared Scanner (VIRS) and the GOES spacecraft. The rain structure is taken by TRMM's Tropical Microwave Imager (TMI). It looks underneath of the storm's clouds to reveal the underlying rain structure.
