Caption: GOES-13 passed over Katia (right, center) on Aug. 30, just after daylight reached it in the Atlantic, it revealed a well-developed storm. The bright vertical line on the Earth shows daylight to the east of the line, and imagery is visible. To the left of the line the earth is still in darkness, and infrared imagery shows where the clouds are located.
