Eye candy: NOAA releases amazing satellite image of tropical storm activity in the Pacific
Wednesday, August 20, 2014, 7:56 PM - If you aren't following @NOAASatellites on Twitter, you're missing out.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration account routinely tweets out crystal clear satellite imagery -- like the photo below, which features the tropical storm activity that's currently brewing in the Pacific.
If that isn't enough, head over to NOAAView Data Exploration Tool, a visualizer that provides users with access to maps of over 100 environmental variables from NOAA's database of satellite and climate records, among other things.
Users can zoom in and out of a specific area and download full resolution images.
You can catch a glimpse of atmospheric conditions as far back as 1880 or as recent as yesterday.
We think it's pretty neat.
