THIS is what a 100 mile wide sea storm looks like.
The photograph, snapped by NASA's Terra satellite, shows an 'island-eating' torrent of water estimated to stretch nearly 100miles (150km ).
The storm is actually just a huge but harmless eddy known as a "current ring".
It formed off the Agulhas Current which flows around the southeastern coast and tip of South Africa.
NASA launched Terra back in 2003 as part of a multinational effort to monitor the spread of pollution around the Earth through a 15-year lifecycle.
