U.S. Nor’easter at night
NASA and NOAA’s Suomi NPP and the GOES-East satellites captured this amazing nighttime view of this week’s snowstorm in the U.S. Northeast. It’s a combination of day-night band and high resolution infrared imagery. The image shows this blizzard near peak intensity, moving over the New York and Boston metropolitan areas at 06:45 UTC (1:45 a.m. EST) on January 27, 2015.
The nighttime lights of the region were blurred by the high cloud tops associated with the most intense parts of the storm.
