A Pareidolia Moment…

Yes, I’m just having one of those interesting moments, but cannot help from seeing the face in this picture.  The Pacific is looking at us!  This is a SPoRT-generated Airmass RGB from the Advanced Himawari Imager (AHI) aboard the recently launched Himawari satellite.  SPoRT is generating some test imagery from the AHI, including several RGBs such as this Airmass RGB.  By the way, that is Typhoon Goni on the left, approaching Taiwan, while Typhoon Atsani is farther to the east (on the right) and is currently forecast to track north of the Marianas Islands over the next few days.
