An animation of images acquired by NASA’s Aqua and Terra satellites shows the growth of an Australian bushfire in the state of Queensland between Oct.
A GOES weather satellite captured this image of Lake effect snow streaming across and downwind of the Great Lakes on Nov.
NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this view of clouds streaming across Lake Erie toward Buffalo and Erie County, New York on Tuesday— where they dumped gargantuan amounts of snow.
The following is a guest post from Paul McDivitt, a second-year master’s student studying journalism and mass communication research at the University of Colorado-Boulder.
The weekly evolution of sea surface temperatures is seen in this animation of images from the start of 2014 through the week of November 5th.
A mosaic of images captured by Rosetta’s OSIRIS camera over a 30 minute period shows the Philae lander drifting above the surface of Comet 67P as it descended, and then making a big bounce after its first touchdown.
A two-image mosaic captured by Rosetta’s lander, Philae, on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
An animation of three images captured by the Rosetta spacecraft on Nov. 12, 2014 showing Philae as it departed for its landing on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

Clouds streamed across the plains from the mountains near Boulder, Colorado as temperatures plummeted and the winds kicked up on Nov.
An animation of false color infrared images from the GOES West weather satellite shows the powerful Bering Sea storm swirling across the Alaska’s Aleutian Islands.
Click for the Polar Vor… I mean the Tasmanian Devil! — in motion. Andy Revkin, my friend and colleague, has an excellent post up over at DotEarth on the ‘Super El Niño’ Forecast Fadeout’ (which I wrote about yesterday here).

This map shows how sea surface temperatures in the Pacific vary from average. During an El Niño event, anomalously warm water develops in the eastern tropical Pacific off the coast of South America.
The view into the coal-fired furnace at Xcel Energy’s Valmont Power Station in Boulder. Limiting the risk of dangerous climate change will require that we phase these out and triple our use of zero- and low-carbon energy sources.
