Goni and Astani sure do make a beautiful couple, though not one we’d wish to cross paths with anytime soon. Satellites and astronauts are keeping a close eye on the pair of typhoons as they brew over the Western Pacific.
Though they're still far from land, Typhoon Goni is projected to come very close to Taiwan and the Philippines by the end of the week. Astani, which has already been classified as a Super Typhoon, is fortunately not expected to have any major impact on land, though it’s currently headed in the direction of Northern Japan. If Goni reaches Super Typhoon status as well, it will be the first time since 1997 that two have formed in the Pacific simultaneously. Even as they are, the twin Typhoons make for a humbling sight. Here are some of the most breathtaking images of the storms captured from above.
