East Coast Braces as Sandy Approaches

The most recent orbit from NOAA and NASA’s latest weather satellite, Suomi NPP, acquired at 1:35 pm ET on October 29, 2012, shows Hurricane Sandy as it approaches the U.S. coastline. An advancement in the VIIRS sensor over its predecessors allows weather forecasters to access highly detailed 370 meter per pixel imagery in the infrared bands, providing much more information to forecasters about the storm's cloud structure and potential for intensification.
