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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The home planet just experienced its second warmest March on record, according to an analysis released by NASA last week.
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.
The equatorial Pacific Ocean is suffering from a split personality disorder: El Niño-ish in the east; La Niña-ish to the west.
Finally! Some relief from the unrelenting decay in Arctic sea ice. Well, no. I was hoping to be able to report that.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Unlike last year, January 2017 got no temperature boost from El Niño. Yet it was still remarkably warm.
This animation of satellite images shows in dramatic fashion just how far California has come following one of its most devastating droughts on record.
