English: The Aqua satellite acquired the picture of Gonu, the most intense tropical cyclone of the Arabian Sea on record, at 12:00 Arabia Standard Time (09:00 UTC) on 4 June 2007. Although the India Meteorological Department claimed that Gonu intensified into a super cyclonic storm at 15:00 UTC, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center indicated that Gonu had started to weaken since 12:00 UTC. Based on the appearance, the picture should be at peak intensity in reality.
