On it’s eighth day as a typhoon, Typhoon Parma continues to churn through the Northwest Pacific Ocean. When the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite captured this image on October 30, 2003, Parma still boasted 132 mile per hour winds. The storm was moving northeast away from Japan and was not expected to make landfall.
