This is super cool.
This picture is the result of the moon illuminating the atmosphere and NASA’s Suomi’s Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite, VIIRS for short, imaging the atmosphere at different light wavelengths. The VIIRS images the earth from green to near infrared light frequencies, and with the help of light intensification (think electronic gain on cameras), this image was made possible [NASA Goddard]
Jeff Niederstadt provided this picture to us on our Facebook page and we had to share it on the blog. It is a picture of Mammatus clouds over Fountain Colorado on July 31, 2012. This is a pretty unique and cool shot and shows the beauty of the monsoon season in Colorado perfectly. Great shot Jeff!
While investigating Tropical Storm Isaac earlier today, Hurricane Hunter Aircraft personnel took a quick moment to snap this picture of a radar image from inside of the plane — giving a rare look into the plane and how it’s crews run. I personally hate flying, but it’s totally on the bucket list to try to get on one of these flights in my lifetime!
