Satellite Captures Stunning Swirl at Bottom of Globe



The stretch of ocean separating Africa, South America and Antarctica is one of the most treacherous places on the planet, with frequent storms and monstrous waves. On a recent overflight of the area, the European satellite known as Meteosat captured a massive storm at sea that took on a classic comma shape, with a trailing tail of clouds extending for hundreds — if not thousands — of miles from the storm center

The low pressure area is located at the center of the comma-shaped swirl.
