What does 10 years of weather look like in three minutes? This animation includes one image from each day of the decade-long life of NASA's Earth-observing GOES-12 satellite. That's 3,641 individual shots.
GOES-12 began monitoring weather along the U.S. East Coast and part of the Atlantic Ocean in April 2003 and in 2010 it was shifted to cover the Southern Hemisphere. Throughout its tenure, GOES captured such extreme weather events as Hurricane Katrina, the blizzards of 2009-2010 and Superstorm Sandy.
(Skip to 0:46 for Hurricane Katrina and 2:50 for Sandy.)
