Satellite images of New Zealand snapped right now looks rather impressive as parts of the country are layered in snow.
UPDATE: Latest satellite images of New Zealand from NOAA are available here and a nice NASA image showing the weather pattern responsible for the snowfall is available here (H/T Sciblogger Chris McDowall and Scilbogs reader Ross Petherick).
These images of the US and the United Kingdom taken from space during last winter in the north are certainly impressive. Here are some of them…
The US monster winter storm
A massive winter storm affecting 30 states from Texas and the Rockies to New England blasted the US with snow, sleet and freezing rain in January. NASA satellites captured images of the storm systems and the snowbound country.
The UK’s icy winter blast
European Space Agency satellite instruments observed the the icy blast in the UK from their vantage points in space last November and December.
Leicester scientists used two instruments, MERIS and AATSR, which returned stunning images of a snow-bound UK from observations on November 29th and December 1st.
