Dear BIRDS-4 followers,
On July 3, a tropical depression above the Philippines was observed by PAGASA while Typhon Fabian consequently entered the Philippines area of responsibility on July 16.
In between those dates (July 11), we have captured a portion of the earth where the Philippines and Japan are located. A build-up of clouds covering the landmasses was noticeable. This is shown in the picture captured by the BIRDS satellite. A part of the sea is also visible reflecting the sun.
