Watch a dust storm kicking up over Mexico and the southwestern United States, as seen from space

Right after Earth Day, I published the first installment of what I said would be semi-regular posts showcasing the dazzling imagery now being produced by the new GOES-16 weather satellite.

Cassini shoots through the gap between Saturn and its rings, returning the closest views ever of the planet

On the first of 22 scheduled dives between Saturn and its innermost rings yesterday, Cassini zoomed at 77,000 miles per hour to within 1,900 miles of the planet's cloud tops — and emerged intact.

Cassini: Going boldly where no spacecraft has gone before—on a dive between Saturn's rings and the planet itself

On July 1, 2004, Cassini became the first spacecraft ever to orbit Saturn. And today, the spacecraft has likely achieved another milestone: Using its 13-foot-wide high-gain antenna as a shield, it probably has made the first ever dive between the rings and the giant gaseous planet itself.

The Arctic as we once knew it is going, going...

A new report finds that while continued change is 'locked in,' there's still time to stabilize some trends by cutting greenhouse gas emissions In the past few years, I've heard it from many researchers: Global warming has pushed the Arctic into a completely new state.

Watch as a giant explosion on the Sun blasts material into space, followed by dancing loops of glowing gas

NASA describes the display of coronal loops as particularly unusual As NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory watched on April 19, 2017, a huge explosion of hot, ionized gas and magnetic field blasted outward from the Sun.

Here's the first installment in a new series at ImaGeo: dazzling imagery from the new GOES-16 weather satellite

With Earth Day just behind us, I've been inspired to start a new series here at ImaGeo: semi-regular posts showcasing the truly dazzling imagery now being produced by the GOES-16 weather satellite.

There's no place like home

A visual celebration of the home planet, starting with a view from Earth as seen from Saturn — 870 million miles away — and zooming in close On the morning of the first Earth Day, on April 20th, 1970, a friend and I boarded the IRT subway line in Brooklyn and headed for Manhattan.

Tropical Storm Arlene spins up in the north Atlantic — two months before the average date of the first named storm of hurricane season

Is climate change playing any role in an apparent lengthening of the hurricane season? It's way early for hurricane season to start, but that's precisely what happened yesterday with the formation of Tropical Storm Arlene in the far northern Atlantic.

Check out this cool animation illustrating California's dramatic change in fortunes

The animation, based on data from a NASA airborne observatory, show just how much the state's snowpack has grown The incredible impact of California's drought-busting deluges has now become even clearer, thanks to this compelling new animation from NASA.

We just had our 2nd warmest March, and with El Niño maybe rising from the dead, things could get interesting

The home planet just experienced its second warmest March on record, according to an analysis released by NASA last week.

It sure does look like a flying saucer zinging around Saturn

But in reality, it is a flying saucer moon named Atlas Who knew? I certainly didn't... Saturn has a moon shaped eerily like a flying saucer.

Say, WHAT? After one of the strongest El Niños on record, another one may brewing

The equatorial Pacific Ocean is suffering from a split personality disorder: El Niño-ish in the east; La Niña-ish to the west.

Another month, yet another record low for Arctic sea ice

Finally! Some relief from the unrelenting decay in Arctic sea ice. Well, no. I was hoping to be able to report that.

California's drought ends (at least for now) in a blaze of wildflower glory so intense it's visible from space

After epic drought, California experienced an equally epic rainy season this past winter. And the state's deserts have responded with an explosion of wildflowers and other vegetation.

Climate change in 2016 — and continuing into 2017 — has brought the planet into "truly uncharted territory"

A new report confirms that last year brought record global temperatures, exceptionally low sea ice, and unabated sea level rise Yesterday I reported that even though the warming influence of El Niño is long gone, February of 2017 brought very little letup in global warming.

As the Trump administration proposes to gut climate change funding, the climate continues to change

Last month brought scant relief from global warming, and there's a chance that 2017 could turn out to be the warmest year on record Even though the warming influence of El Niño is long gone, and 2017 was expected to offer some relief from record temperatures set last year, February saw very little letup in global warming.

Wildfires raging on more than a million acres in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas leave at least six people dead

The wildfires show up clearly in these animations of satellite imagery Fierce winds, temperatures in the 80s, and low humidity, have whipped up deadly wildfires in the Southern Plains that so far have killed at least six people and prompted the evacuation of thousands.

Why did scientists deliberately freeze themselves into sea ice near the North Pole, enduring storms and brutal cold?

The work of the Norwegian Young Sea Ice Cruise is providing insights into rapid Arctic changes caused by human-induced global warming Note: This story was written by guest blogger, Zoë Rom, with contributions from me.

Even without a boost from El Niño, January 2017 was 3rd warmest such month in records dating back 137 years

Unlike last year, January 2017 got no temperature boost from El Niño. Yet it was still remarkably warm.

California rivers are so swollen from runoff that the impact is easily seen in these before and after satellite images

This animation of satellite images shows in dramatic fashion just how far California has come following one of its most devastating droughts on record.
