The MODIS instrument onboard NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this true-color image of Super Typhoon Dianmu on June 16, 2004 at 4:15 UTC. At the time this image was taken, Dianmu was located approximately 950 miles southeast of Kadena and was packing sustained winds of 180 mph with higher gusts to 220 mph. Dianmu is expected to continue on its north-northwest path and gradually turn to the north.
