A perceptible picture of intensification Tropical Storm Lekima has been captured by the Aqua Satellite of NASA while passing over the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. The MODIS, or Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer, an instrument onboard the Aqua satellite offered an evident picture of Lekima that displayed a ring of strapping thunderstorms around its circulation core. The core of Lekima was situated close to latitude 19.1° north and longitude 129.0° degrees east at 5 a.m. EDT. Lekima was around 449 nmi south of Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan. It was stirring to the north-northwest and had almost 50 knots (57 mph/92 kph) maximum sustained winds.
Within the subsequent 2 Days, the Lekima will cross Taiwan prior to rolling northeast off the coast of China, and ultimately dispelling close to the Korean peninsula, as predicted by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. As per the most recent observation information by the Japan Meteorological Agency, the Lekima’s center is situated around 754 km east-southeast of the southernmost tip of Taiwan, Eluanbi.
On the other end, soon after proclaiming “three new findings,” the newest planet-hunting satellite of NASA is back with a “startling discovery of a promising world.” The most recent discovery from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) surfaces in the shape of a planet in the star GJ 357’s inhabitable zone.
NASA mentions that planet GJ 357 d could be around double the size of Earth “if composed of rock” and 31 light-years far-off in the constellation Hydra in a system. As for star GJ 357, NASA states it is deemed to be 40% cooler compared to our Sun. The planet is considered to weigh around 6.1 times than that of our planet, and that it revolves around its star every 55.7 Days. The space agency also found GJ 357 c, a middle planet, which is deemed to be 3.4 times Earth’s size and that it revolves around its star every 9.1 Days.
