Description The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite captured this true-colour image of Hurricane Charley on August 13, 2004, at 12:35 p.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time. At the time this image was taken, Charley was rapidly gaining strength and would reach Category Four status just 90 minutes later. Maximum sustained winds at 2:00 p.m. were at 145 miles per hour, and Charley was moving towards the north-northeast at 20 miles per hour.
