NASA Satellites See Sandy Expand as Storm Intensifies

    For the latest info from NASA on Hurricane Sandy go to:

    NOAA's GOES-13 satellite captured this visible image of the massive Hurricane Sandy on Oct. 28 at 1302 UTC (9:02 a.m. EDT). The line of clouds from the Gulf of Mexico north are associated with the cold front that Sandy is merging with. Sandy's western cloud edge is already over the Mid-Atlantic and northeastern U.S.

      At 902 EDT the pacific would be black.
      I can see California clearly even though it would be an hour before sunrise.
      And bright white well lit Greenland on top? No. Not today!

      @levybenathome It is not fake, it is a composite image of the cloud mask over a "true color" background. Cloud mask can be detected during night time since it is a combination of infrared bands. The color in the mask is also not the color of the actual cloud, but an indicator of probability of cloudiness.

      Almost, Nov 1 is when Hurricane season officially ends. I really wish today was Nov. 2. I don't even know anymore, Exactly one year ago tomorrow I was shoveling about 5, 6 inches of snow in Philly, now this. The track of this is incredibly odd. Turn Left, travel 150-200 miles to central PA, make hard right turn..go to Canada. What the!!?

      This is one system/systems that can't be ignored. Clash of two. Warnings need to be followed and this is worse than the Australian Tropical Cyclone "Yasi" .
