Caption: Cyclone from space. Space shuttle image of a cyclone, a system of winds rotating inwards to an area of low barometric pressure. The cyclone forms the swirl of clouds surrounding the "eye" (at centre). Cyclones can form into hurricanes or typhoons. The "eye" is comprised of relatively calm, cloud-free air at a very low pressure. Around this "eye" are the cyclone's strongest winds. Cyclones form in tropical regions and are caused by large-scale evaporation and convection due to warm sea temperatures. Photographed off the Pacific coast of California, USA.
