Suomi NPP Satellite Views of Tropical Cyclone Mahasen in the Northern Indian Ocean

The first tropical cyclone in the Northern Indian Ocean this season has been getting better organized as seen in NASA satellite imagery. Tropical Cyclone Mahasen is projected to track north through the Bay of Bengal and make landfall later this week. On May 13, NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured various night-time and day-time imagery that showed

Mesospheric Gravity Waves, lightning, and heavy rainfall in false-colored imagery.
