Australia - January 31st, 2011

An interesting, ball-shaped area of convection can be observed in South Australia, north of the Spencer Gulf. This area of convection was present at the same time Tropical Cyclone Yasi (11P) was affecting Queensland, Australia, to the north.

Several of the rivers in Australia’s Channel Country can be observed as brown lines just northwest of the convective area. To the southwest, Lake Torrens and Lake Gardner appear as large white salt flats.
