Caption: Hurricane Dean, infrared satellite image, obtained at 08:45 local time on 20 August 2007 as it passed through the Caribbean, moving from right to left. North is at top. The islands of Cuba (across top) and Jamaica (centre) are outlined in white. The image is colour-coded for intensity of reflected infrared. A dense mass of cloud (orange) is seen rotating around the eye of the hurricane (centre left).
