Satellite Pix for Kent

Hong Kong Observatory

The eye of Kent is visible as a darkish dot (indicating that it is relatively cloud free and warm inside the eye) surrounded by its cloud bands in white (clouds with great vertical extent and low cloud-top temperatures).  The sub-tropical ridge is revealed by the nearly cloud-free (dark) region over the sea area east of China.
