Hurricane Dolores located about 20 degrees southwest of the tip of the Baja Peninsula in the eastern Pacific supported winds of 90 knots with gust of 100 knots on July 9, 1997. The photograph was taken through overhead windows on the aft flight deck of the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Columbia. Notice the thunderstorms in the bands leading into the eye at lower levels and the lighter cirrus clouds coming from the outflow out of the eye at higher levels.
