Caption: When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Nadine on Friday, Sept. 28, 2012, at 11:45 a.m. EDT, the MODIS instrument captured this visible image of the storm. Nadine had just regained hurricane status with maximum sustained winds near 75 mph (120 kph) and it would later weaken back to a tropical storm and strengthen again into a hurricane.
