Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra
satellite captured this image of Hurricane Juan just moments after it was
declared the fifth hurricane of the season on September 26, 2003. At the
time, Juan was about 160 miles east of Bermuda, and moving north at 8 miles
per hour. Though Bermuda was affected by the storm, it escaped the worst of
the hurricane’s 75 mile-per-hour winds.
