Tropical Cyclone Rusty (17S) over Western Australia

Uploader comment: NASA’s Aqua satellite flew over Australia on February 26, 2013 as a strengthening Tropical Cyclone Rusty slowly approached landfall. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) flying aboard captured this stunning image of the massive storm at 0545 UTC on that same day, when the large eye hung just off the coast, aiming for Port Headland, Western Australia.
