Spooky 'Skull' Spotted in Image of Hurricane Michael

Prior to Hurricane Michael pounding the Florida panhandle this  afternoon, an eerie satellite image of the storm may have served as a  harbinger of the chaos to come. In a tweet on Tuesday morning, Florida  meteorologist Jim Dickey shared an infrared satellite image of the hurricane in which the center of the  storm bore an uncanny resemblance to a skull. As one can imagine, the  photo quickly went viral with all manner of theories being offered as to  what the creepy visage might portend.

Fortunately any apocalyptic fears that may have been conjured by the  skull can be put to rest as a NOAA scientist explained to the Washington Post that such shapes are often seen in satellite images of storms. And, in  fact, the 'skull' likely only appeared for a brief moment, fortuitously  captured in a snapshot of the hurricane, before the whirling winds wiped  it away and took on a different appearance. "It's kind of like looking  at a cloud," Dan Lindsey said, "and people see an elephant or  something."
