NOAA Photo Library Image - wea03389

Waterspout sequence as the spray from a waterspout approaches the NOAA Ship GORDON GUNTER which is constrained in its ability to maneuver as the recently launched TAO buoy is not yet anchored and is still secured by its mooring line to the ship. The funnel remains invisible throughout this sequence.
