Our sensor captured this incredible image of Hurricane #Isaac at night from space:

Last Updated: 08/29/2012* A Raytheon-built sensor captured this striking nighttime view of Hurricane Isaac as the storm whipped the southern United States this week. Click image for larger view (Credit: NASA) The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite took this picture shortly after midnight on Aug. 28 using its day-night band sensor. The sensor is carried aboard the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite, which was launched in October 2011. The lights of U.S. cities are clearly visible north of the storm. To the east, the lights of Florida peek through a thin cloud layer. Tampa, site of the Republican National Convention this week, shines through a gap in the clouds. VIIRS is giving meteorologists unprecedented views of developing storms during the 2012 hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30. The sensor can map warm ocean currents that feed st...
