Hurricane Issac From Space

Hurricane Isaac: 2 Views

Here are two contrasting views of Hurricane Isaac as it approaches the Louisiana Gulf Coast, and New Orleans.
One view is of the hurricane taken by NASA’s AQUA satellite yesterday afternoon (28 August).
The second picture is a night view of the gulf coast as seen through the lens of the VIIRS (Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite) on the Suomi-NPP satellite, (Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership). “Suomi NPP is NASA’s next Earth-observing research satellite. It is the first of a new generation of satellites that will observe many facets of our changing Earth.”
