The smallest of ESA's satellites, Proba-2, caught an impressive image of Typhoon Soulik's swirling eye as it approached Taiwan (Province of China) on July 19, 2013. Hours later, Soulik's approach produced mass evacuations in Taiwan due to the torrential rainfall and fierce winds caused by the Typhoon.
