In the morning of 21 October 2017, tropical cyclone Lan intensified into a Super Typhoon over the seas east of the Ryukyu Islands. The satellite imagery showed an integral and symmetric structure of Super Typhoon Lan; its eye and eye wall could be clearly seen. The animation also captured cloud bands rotating around the eye of Lan. (The imageries were captured by Himawari-8 satellite of Japan Meteorological Agency)
