Uploader comment: On January 22, 2013 the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite flew over a weakening Tropical Cyclone Oswald over northeastern Australia. At that time, the center of the system hovered over the York Peninsula of Queensland, while associated clouds and rain bands stretch northward across Papua New Guinea.
