On the 17th of July 2016, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) captured images of the Hurricane Darby and Tropical Storm Estelle.

Those two natural phenomena follow previous ones which also occurred in the eastern Pacific Ocean named Agatha, Blas and Celia. If those different disasters did not perpetrate any damage and remained above the water, they are part of the hurricane season in Eastern Pacific which appears every year.
