April marked the 388th month in a row that the global temperature was warmer than average

To find a month when the global average temperature over the land and oceans was below average, you have to go all the way back to December 1984, according to the latest monthly analysis from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Polar eye candy: check out this spectacular aerial photo of a Greenlandic fjord from NASA's Operation IceBridge

PLUS: a gallery of other compelling images from the mission I'm always looking for cool imagery to use here at ImaGeo, and today I stumbled on this photo.

The heat goes on: This past April was second warmest in records dating back to 1880 — as were February and March

But with the monster El Niño of 2015/2016 far back in the rear-view mirror, temperatures in 2017 are running somewhat lower than last year NASA has come out with its monthly analysis of global temperatures, and the results are notable, if not terribly surprising: Last month was the second warmest April in 137 years of modern record-keeping.

Why you should take hyperventilating headlines about CO2 with a grain of salt — but still be quite concerned

Back in late April, there was a spate of hyperventilating headlines and news reports about the increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

This stunning image of Jupiter from NASA's Juno spacecraft is simply out of this world — except it's not

The filagree of atmospheric patterns at Jupiter's south pole bears an eerie resemblance to a phenomenon here on Earth When I spotted this image of Jupiter on NASA's website, I felt a bit disoriented.

Heading into the summer, Arctic sea ice is in bad shape

Arctic sea ice extent in April was nearly 394,000 square miles below the long-term average — an area one-and-a-half times the size of Texas.

This striking new movie shows Cassini's view as it swooped low above Saturn's cloud-tops

With Cassini already preparing for a third dive between Saturn and its rings, NASA has released this spectacular movie from the first dive https://youtu.be/9LBLCgCYy0I I can't help it — I'm just enchanted by the imagery coming back from Cassini as it has been swooping through the gap between Saturn and the giant planet's rings.

Here's what Cassini heard as it made its daring dive between Saturn and its rings

A Simon and Garfunkel song comes to mind—and that has scientists scratching their heads as the spacecraft heads today for a second dive.

Spectacular new satellite imagery of severe storms shows the atmosphere as a boiling, roiling cauldron of clouds

High-resolution animation from GOES-16: massive thunderstorms over southern Illinois, part of a sprawling, dangerous weather system A large swath of the nation's midsection has been hammered with torrential downpours.

A columnist makes asinine arguments on climate change, prompting scientists to cut their noses, spiting our faces

The cure for false speech is more truth telling — not less speech. In his first piece as an op ed columnist for the N.Y.

The first true-color images of Saturn taken during Cassini's close encounter are coming in — and they're beautiful!

We've already been treated to spectacular black and white closeup images of Saturn, beamed home to Earth by the Cassini spacecraft after it dove between the planet and its rings.

Watch a dust storm kicking up over Mexico and the southwestern United States, as seen from space

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.

Cassini shoots through the gap between Saturn and its rings, returning the closest views ever of the planet

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.

Cassini: Going boldly where no spacecraft has gone before—on a dive between Saturn's rings and the planet itself

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.

The Arctic as we once knew it is going, going...

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.

Watch as a giant explosion on the Sun blasts material into space, followed by dancing loops of glowing gas

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.

Here's the first installment in a new series at ImaGeo: dazzling imagery from the new GOES-16 weather satellite

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.

There's no place like home

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.

Tropical Storm Arlene spins up in the north Atlantic — two months before the average date of the first named storm of hurricane season

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.

Check out this cool animation illustrating California's dramatic change in fortunes

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.
