Cyclone Marcus in the Indian Ocean • Earth.com

Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at Cyclone Marcus, the first category 5 cyclone of 2018.

Cyclone Marcus is the strongest storm to hit Darwin, Australia since 1974, but luckily, most of its potency has been felt in the Indian Ocean instead of populated land areas.

This image was captured by the Visible Infrared Imaging Suite (VIIRS) on board the Joint Polar Satellite System-1 (JPSS-1) satellite.
