Caption: Tropical typhoons over the western Pacific, photographed by the crew of space shuttle Discovery during Mission 51-I (27 August to 3 September, 1985). The typhoons are Odessa (far left) and Pat. The swirling cloud structure of Typhoon Pat is particularly clear. The centre of the typhoon (the 'eye') is well delineated, as is a line of massive cumulonimbus thunder clouds on the far side of the storm. The winds inside a typhoon system reach hurricane levels, although the 'eye' normally has no wind and little cloud cover.
