The Colorful Radar Images of Tropical Storm Ana

Weather in general can be stunningly beautiful but weather observed through human technologies like radar can also be strikingly beautiful. 

The way we take data and visualize it can turn a nasty storm into a piece of art. Check out these images below of Tropical Storm Ana on the evening of May 9, 2015.  

The images were taken using the app RadarScope. The images are different observations taken of the storm, from high resolution radar to storm velocity (basically which way the wind is blowing) and cloud formation (or what's going on in the clouds).
