NASA AIRS Infrared Image of Hurricane Rina (image) NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Share Print E-Mail Caption On Oct. 25, when NASA's Aqua satellite passed overhead it collected valuable data about Rina's cloud top temperatures. It showed a large area of strong thunderstorms (purple) completely surrounding the center of circulation. The strongest, coldest, highest cloud tops that surrounded the center of Rina (the eye) were colder than -63 Fahrenheit. The eye (blue surrounded by purple) showed warmer temperatures, indicating that it may be seen on visible satellite data.
