Uploader comment: On January 18, 2013 the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board NASA’s Terra satellite passed over the island province of Cheju Do, South Korea and captured a delicate paisley-like pattern in the clouds to south of the island. The swirls are known as von Karman vortex streets, and are created by the turbulent flow on wind.
