Even Texas looks like Alaska!

Well at least the top corner of it did on January 7th.  It appears that snow fell on a majority of states in the continental US in January.  These images are from the NASA Earth Observatory website – the one of the southwest was taken quite recently, January 28th.

Satellite image of Alaska – smoke and clouds

Here’s a satellite image of Alaska from several days ago, June 22nd.  The clouds are white and fluffy; the gray underneath them is smoke from wildfires.  You can actually download a large image on the NASA website and zoom way in.  It’s amazing really, how beautiful Alaska is, regardless of what hell it’s putting us through.  Here’s the link:  http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/NaturalHazards/view.php?id=86098&src=fb

Here’s what a wildfire looks like from an airplane. Fascinating.  Thanks for the photo Joe Kemp.
