Von Karman Vortices

I've never heard of these before, but I thought some of you might enjoy this amazing weather phenomenon. For a scale reference, that little green dot in the middle-upper left is an island. The land mass to the right is Mexico.

The attached pic is from the NOAA high res satellite imagery site. Go there for the high-def versions of these pics. Here's the link:
