Image Caption: This photograph was fairly characteristic of the western Pacific Ocean between the Philippine Islands and the area just south of the Japanese Islands during the duration of the STS-65 shuttle mission. The western half of a large typhoon can be seen near the horizon and terminator. Numerous small thunderstorms are visible toward the center of the photograph, and an extensive area of scattered clouds (with possibly dissipated or collapsed thunderstorms) can be seen towards the bottom of the picture. View was taken aboard Columbia, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 102.
