STS51I-37-0083 Eye Of Typhoon Odessa, Pacific Ocean August 1985
This spectacular, oblique view shows the eye of typhoon Odessa, southeast of Japan in the Pacific Ocean. The eyewall drops into the center of the image. Outboard from the eye are large thunderstorms billowing on top of the cloud mass and gravity waves. An astronaut's perspective from low Earth orbit provides details of large storm systems that cannot be resolved from other meteorological satellites.
