Caption: NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm Kirogi on Aug. 9 at 0241 UTC. The AIRS instrument captured an infrared image of the cloud temperatures that showed a concentrated area of strongest storms (purple) and heaviest rainfall around west of the center of circulation. AIRS shows cool waters in the direction Kirogi is heading, which will sap the storm's strength.
