As a massive and powerful cyclone with winds exceeding hurricane strength (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/c…) swirled in the northeast Pacific, the GOES-15 weather satellite captured the images that comprise this animation. The imagery come from the satellite’s 6.5 µm water vapor channel imagery. It shows the development and evolution of the storm between Sept. 21 and 23, 2014.
