Hurricane Irene Approaching the Bahamas
In this spectacular video of images taken by the GOES-13 satellite we can see the growth of Hurricane Irene over Haiti and approaching the Bahamas on August 22 through to August 24.
Watching carefully, there are a few things that are worth looking out for. Firstly, at 0055UTC you can see the eye of Hurricane Irene appear for the first time. Also, throughout the video you’ll be able to see the sunglint pass over the ocean as the sun passes away.
