The NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite was handed over to the bangladesh navy, in the Indian Ocean, and was captured by a tropical cyclone Gaja.

Guja was formed on November 10 at 4 o'clock. EST (2100 UTC) as a tropical cyclone 07B, about 569 miles southwest of Chittagong, Bangladesh. It was strengthened in the tropical storm and the gas.

On November 13, the device of the infrared image radiometer Suite (VIIRS) at NASA-NOAA's Armenian NPP satellite gathered data on the tropical cyclone Gaja. Gaja appeared somewhat elongated and had a rainy packing in the center. Gas was found much more in the Bay of Bengal's satellite imagery.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center or JTWC noted that "animated multiplex satellite images show expansive, unorganized and fragmented rain performers freely in the packaging of deep central circulation in the central core of the north-east."

On November 13, 10:00 am EST (1500 UTC) Gaja Maximum Sustainable Wind was 40 mph (35 knots / 62 kph). It is located at approximately 320 nautical miles east of India, India at 13.4 degrees north and 85.6 degrees east latitude. West of the southwest.

JTWC predicts slow intensification, 15 km south-east of the south-east, 50 kilometers (57.5 mph / 92.6 kph)
