Monster Snowstorm Hits US, Photos Captured from Space

A monster snowstorm is hitting the central part of the United States and is also expected to move Midwest. This monster snowstorm may soon cause power outages and lots of damage to private and public properties.

In a dramatic manner, NASA has captured from space this snowstorm giving us a glimpse of how massive this one is. The photos were captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) from the NASA's Terra satellite.

NASA described:

“Visible and infrared images and animations of the storm's clouds and movement are created every 15 minutes by the NASA GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. using data from GOES-11 and GOES-13, the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites. The GOES-13 and GOES-11 satellites that cover the eastern and western U.S., respectively, are operated by NOAA.”
