AIRS Satellite Progression of Cyclone Bingiza

Caption: This series of infrared satellite imagery from the AIRS instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite shows the progression of Tropical Cyclone Bingiza over the weekend of Feb. 12-13. On February 12 at 21:35 UTC, Bingiza's center was still at sea, and an eye was visible. On Feb. 13 at 0947 UTC, AIRS noticed the western edge of Bingiza over northeastern Madagascar and the storm appears to be expanding. On Feb. 13 at 22:17 UTC, Bingiza's center was on the northeastern coastline and it was making landfall.
