NASA Infrared View of Tropical Storm Banyan

Caption: When NASA's Aqua satellite flew over Tropical Storm Banyan (Ramon) on Oct. 11, 2011, at 12:53 EDT, NASA AIRS infrared imagery showed Banyan's strong convection (purple) has strengthened and grown in area. Convection is slightly west of the center (marked with a white "X") which indicates wind shear from the east.
