Dawn to Dusk: Hurricane Sandy, October 29, 2012, Super Rapid Scan

Written By Alena Sedletskaya on Thursday, November 1, 2012 | 2:44 PM

This time-lapse video shows the evolution of Hurricane Sandy from dawn to dusk on October 29, 2012. The video was compiled from satellite images taken every minute from 6:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. EDT. 


The images were collected in "super rapid scan" mode by the GOES-14 satellite, which observes Earth from geostationary orbit (35,800 km or 22,300 miles) over the Western Hemisphere. The changing angles of sunlight highlight the motions and different structures in the clouds. GOES satellites are built by NASA and operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
