Tropical Storm Noel… from Space

I don’t usually talk about the weather, but look at this picture… wow. It’s an image of tropical storm Noel, currently moving westward across the Caribbean Sea, and captured by ESA’s Envisat environmental monitoring satellite. When the image was taken, it was still just a depression, but it was upgraded to a tropical storm on Sunday. Noel is the 14th storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, and has tropical storm force winds stretch out 225 km from its centre.
