I have no real reason to post this image of the new hurricane Igor -- now exploding into a category 4 monster in the Atlantic -- other than to make the joke in the title, and because it's terribly pretty.

[Click to encoriolisize, or go here to see a range of size options.] The picture was taken by NASA's Aqua satellite on Sunday, September 12 at 16:00 UT. It's well east and south of the US right now, but its path is unclear. I suspect Chris Mooney at The Intersection will be keeping a close eye -- yes, haha -- on it. Stay tuned.
