Perspective view of Hurricane Allen from space

Computer-generated perspective view of Hurricane Allen, seen over the Gulf of Mexico on 8 August 1980. The image was produced from two TIROS-N satellite images, one taken in visible light, the other in the infrared (at a wavelength of 11 microns). A computer uses the two data sets to calculate the heights of the cloud tops and to create a 3-D computer model of the storm. A 2-D image can then be generated, viewing the hurricane from any chosen height and angle. 10 -- damaged
