Image Caption: This view of a South Pacific storm was photographed from the Skylab space station in Earth orbit by one of the Skylab 4 crewmen. The crewman used a hand-held 70mm Hasselblad camera to take this picture. This photograph of a low pressure area and associated frontal activity was taken for studying the development of such storm systems. The low sun angle enhances the relief, giving much of the picture a three-dimensional appearance. This storm, located east of New Zealand at 170 degrees west longitude and 50 degrees south latitude, is not and never become a typhoon.
