Animation: Timelapse of Cyclone Vania being born

This timelapse uses false colour infrared imagery from JMA’s MTSAT geostationary satellite to track the path of Tropical Cyclone Vania forming and travelling to the southern tip of New Caledonia, near Noumea in January 1011.

The storm is expected to head south toward Norfolk Island then on to New Zealand.

Watch as Vania explodes into life north east of New Caledonia.
