On September 15, three tropical cyclones were active in the Atlantic Ocean basin, two of them powerful Category Four hurricanes on the Saffir-Simpson scale.

The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite called GOES-13 satellite captured an image of Tropical Storm Karl and Hurricanes Igor and Julia in one image on Sept. 15 at 1445 UTC (10:45 a.m. EDT).

At that time, Tropical Storm Karl (left) was making landfall in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, Category 4 Hurricane Igor was spinning in the Atlantic Ocean (center) over 1000 miles southeast of Bermuda, and Category 4 Hurricane Julia trailing to Igor's east (far right) about 600 miles west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands in the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

GOES satellites are operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. NASA's GOES Project, located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. creates satellite images and animations using GOES satellite data.
