    This one I posted yesterday, enhanced to highlight arctic clouds and top surface features

    This one is also from yesterday from the MODIS instament on the Terra Sat.

    Now unfortunately the sat was not quite in the right position, but if you look at the high resolution version of this image it is still pretty spectacular!

    (WARNING 4Mb download Hi Res version ...

    http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/realtim...112000.250m.jpg )

    If you look very closely at that hi res version above, you can just see the shetland islands poking out from behind the clouds.

    And finaly todays image which while not as spectacular does show the centre of the cyclone hitting the south Coast of Norway near Kristansand about midday ... and then subsequently breaking up.

    Note that the bottom right corner is just a false colour enhancement of the eye to reveal top cloud structure.

    Enjoy!

    I should add that the MODIS pic was captured at 11:15UTC on 31/1/08 ... or about an hour before the other one.

    And no stress about the move ... still finding my way here! :unsure:

    To the far right of the second photo I can see a big Roman-esque statue. Is that normal?!

    LOL very funny. But I love that MODIS image the 250m resolution version (hires) it is possible to see the snow covering, unfortunately The Terra satellite was a little too far North, and Aqua's shot (which is this one)

    is even worse mainly because of the scanning "lines" at the extremities of the shot. But it does show you how extensive the snow cover is over Scandinavia. Also unfortunately NASA do not produce a subset for scandinavia so you can only really get these Raw shots.

    This one with the sun at a much lower angle really shows the structure and the amount of convection in this storm particullarly around the center, and that is despite it winding down.

    Dont be sorry I was having a joke! It is actually interesting to know that the same storm system is called two different names. How are the names chosen? I know a fair bit about tropical cyclones and how they are named but how are these extratropical cyclones named?
