Caption: Typhoon Yunya near the Philippines. Satellite image showing Typhoon Yunya (pale circular feature) approaching the Philippine Islands. The largest island seen here is Luzon (green area left of centre). This image was made on 11 June 1991, five days before the eruption of Mount Pinatubo. Typhoons are tropical cyclonic storms, in which wind speeds may reach 200 kilometres per hour. They form in the Pacific about 5 degrees from the equator, where a large area of ocean surface has a temperature of over 27 degrees Celsius. The data for this image were gathered by the AVHRR radiometer on the NOAA-10 polar-orbiting satellite.
