Caption: NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm Oscar on Oct. 4 at 1335 UTC (9:35 a.m. EDT) and captured this true-color image of the storm in the central Atlantic Ocean. The bulk of Oscar's clouds and showers were southeast of the center of circulation as a result of northwesterly wind shear.
