Today’s Image of the Day from NASA shows southern Africa as Tropical Cyclone Joalane was moving over the Indian Ocean.

The composite image represents six orbits on April 9, 2015 by a weather satellite called the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP).

The photos were combined by the Ocean Biology Processing Group at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
