The MODIS instrument onboard NASA's Terra satellite captured this bird's-eye view of Hurricane Kate on October 3, 2003 at 13:35 UTC. At the time this image was taken Kate had sustained winds of 110 mph with higher gusts. Kate has taken the shape of a classic hurricane with a well-defined eye that is approximately 25 miles in diameter. The National Hurricane Center is predicting that Kate will strengthen over the next 24 hours.
