Super Typhoon Lekima's Eyewall Replacement Cycle

The Eyewall Replacement Cycle Of Super Typhoon Lekima- On MIMIC.
This is what an eyewall replacement cycle looks like. A new eyewall forms outside of the old eyewall, and then the convection between the 2 eyewalls dissipates, leaving an entirely new eye to boot.
This is the first time I have captured the MIMIC simulated radar displaying this amazing feat of nature.
Notice the weakening occuring during this cycle (top left of the image). This is perfectly normal while an eyewall replacement cycle is in progress.

Lekima on Terra/MODIS satellite.... It looks very impressive.
