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.
