NASA satellites track Hurricane Arthur from Space

Hurricane Arthur captured by NASA on 4 July.

Several satellites kept track and monitored Hurricane Arthur from the initial phases to the development of a Hurricane and to a post-tropical storm.

On 29 June 2014, a low-pressure area in the center east of Florida developed. That area evolved afterward into Tropical Depression 1, captured on June 30 by the MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite.
