NASA Examines Hurricane Sandy as it Affects the Eastern U.S.

“NASA's Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument on NASA's Aqua spacecraft captured this infrared image of Hurricane Sandy, another weather front to the west and cold air coming down from Canada at 2:17 p.m. EDT Oct. 29. The hurricane center is the darkest purple area in the Atlantic, just to the east of the New Jersey coast, reflecting Sandy's areas of heaviest rainfall.”
