    This storm was from the South Indian Ocean back in 1982. We didn't have a geostationary satellite over the Indian Ocean until the late 1990s. That's why the images are so pixelated, the satellite is looking out its peripheral vision (#limb).

    It might have developed an eye, but we'll never know because the satellite might not have been able to peer down into from that angle.

    Too bad. Are there other satellites that might see the storm better?
