Clouds from Earth & Space

Yesterday, there was an enormous cloud (pictured above, photo credit: Jenn Gebbie) visible from the Greater Boston Area that had extraordinarily well defined edges.  I thought “This must be visible from space,” so I snapped a pic and jumped on my PC when I got home.  I was fascinating to find out it was very visible from space!

In the process, I discovered the NOAA National Environment Satellite, Data and Information Service, which has tons of satellite images!  Clicking on Northwest Atlatic, NOAA offers tons of options with pretty good 480p resolution.  Kudos NOAA!
