NOAA's GOES-East satellite provided days of infrared and visible imagery that showed the quick development and demise of Tropical Storm Philippe in the Atlantic Ocean.

NASA's Aqua satellite captured a look at Philippe when it was in its "prime" as a tropical storm near Key West.

At NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.

an animation of imagery from NOAA's GOES East satellite was created that shows the development, movement and demise of Tropical Storm Philippe from Oct. 28 to Oct. 30.

Philippe developed from Tropical Depression 18 in the western Caribbean Sea, moved northeast through the Gulf of Mexico to Florida's east coast and merged with a frontal system.

On Oct. 29 at 2:59 a.m. EDT (0659 UTC), the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua Satellite captured infrared temperature data on Philippe when it was still a tropical storm.
