    Any explanations for the apparent clockwise rotation of the outer bands in the later frames?

    Surface winds in this region are counterclockwise:

    @etherwar - The swoosh you are referring to is passing clouds. This is a time lapse video.

    @HumbleGenius1, @etherwar- i saw the same swoosh, but it passes at a different rate than any other cloud, appears to be at a different depth, and does not appear to have any of the same qualities as those other clouds...

    Great progression. I've never seen a slow motion progression of a satellite image of a hurricane as it swirls and spins off dense clouds before. This is great.

    The swoosh is "sun glint", i.e. glare, reflecting off of the Earth's surface as the sun passes by from directly behind the satellite. It is not a cloud.
