Caption: Hurricane Dean, satellite image. North is at top. Image obtained at 15:05 local time on 21 August 2007 as the hurricane passed over Mexico's Yucatan peninsula. The tip of the peninsula is seen at upper right. The hurricane had moved in from the Caribbean (right), making landfall as a Category 5 hurricane. After landfall, it weakened to a Category 3, and here it has weakened further to a Category 1 hurricane. The eye has collapsed, though powerful winds still maintain the swirling cloud shape. Hurricane Dean was the first Atlantic hurricane to hit land as a category 5 since 1992. The next day, it moved out over the Gulf of Mexico (upper left). Image from the MODIS instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite.
