NASA has been passing around a poster of the NPP satellite, get yours here..

The NPP is a brand new Weather forecast and climate study satellite which has a South to North polar orbit.  It launched back on October 28th and I have been following and providing updates on it's progress.

First Global Image from NPP

Another Image taken in November from Nasa's NPP Satellite.   As you can see the image is composed of thin strips as the spacecraft travels from south to north in its pole to pole trek.   Like a puzzle the image is put together to form a global map, you can see swirls of cloud formations that may have been storms at the time.

2011 - PBS Video on Extreme Weather

I missed a great program and probably one of the best Weather expert interviews of the year.
 This program air last week where they had two guests, Kathryn Sullivan who is the Deputy Director of NOAA and Dr. Jeff Masters, Co-founder of Weather Underground.  I have been reading Jeff Master's weather blog for years.  Here is a great video that explains events that occurred this year and a clear example of how  "Climate Change" is impacting our weather.  I encourage you to watch this video, you will see why I read and follow the experts.
