Hurricane Sandy (Atlantic Ocean)

”NASA and NOAA Satellite Imagery Reveal Sandy's Super-Size”

”This visible image of Hurricane Sandy shows the massive extent of its clouds, covering about 2,000 miles.”
“The image was taken by the MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) instrument on NASA's Terra satellite on Oct. 26 at 16:10 UTC (12:10 p.m. EDT). Sandy's center was in the Bahamas at that time, and its western clouds were brushing the southeastern U.S. coast.”
