The NASA Earth Observatory “Image of the Day” often posts some amazing images, such as some great images from the Gulf oil spill last April.
I love the way that NASA describes today’s image, shown below, as a “paved highways of clouds”. It’s a striking image, taken on January 24, that shows incredible clouds off the coast of the northeastern United States, while the clear skies above land uncover the freshly fallen snow.
Like many of their images, they provide a few different ways to view it. You can view it directly on their site, download a 6MB jpg or download a 97MB GeoTiff.
Of course, the best way to view great images like this is with Google Earth! I compressed their jpg down to slightly a more reasonable size and put it in this KML file for you to use in Google Earth.
NASA often releases great images for us to enjoy, and this is another fine example.
