    Prev Next

    NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite saw that Tropical Cyclone Winston maintained a pinhole eye as it tracked east of southern Vanuatu's islands in the Southern Pacific Ocean on Feb. 23. Infrared imagery showed bands of strong thunderstorms were wrapping into the low-level center of the storm.

    Tropical Cyclone Winston was moving past Vanuatu in the South Pacific Ocean on Feb. 23 at 0140 UTC when NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured this image of the storm.
