February 15, 2013
This true-color image from the MODIS instrument on NASA's Aqua spacecraft shows Tropical Cyclone Cilla located approximately 333 miles east of Suva, Fiji. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph and Cilla is expected to slowly transition to an extratropical system as it moves to the south.
