Marveling at Super Typhoon Megi

* PM Update: A few shots at some showers *


Much has already been written about Super Typhoon Megi, the strongest tropical cyclone to hit a mass of land on the planet since Hurricane Dean in 2007. The one time Category 5 storm exhibited amazing satellite features prior to landfall

See the sequence above just before Megi swept across the northern Philippines. The top image is a close-up of the third image in the series beneath it. I enhanced the contrast a bit so you can look-in at the structure of the spiral bands surrounding the eye and inside the eye itself.
