Satellite sees the formation of eastern Pacific's Tropical Depression 13E

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The thirteenth tropical depression of the Eastern Pacific Ocean season formed on Aug. 18. NOAA's GOES-Wet satellite captured an image of the new storm.

NASA looks at rainfall in Tropical Storm Harvey

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Harvey is now moving into the eastern Caribbean Sea. NASA's GPM core satellite examined the soaking rainfall the new tropical storm was generating along its path.

NASA gets a final look at Hurricane Gert's rainfall

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Before Hurricane Gert became a post-tropical cyclone, NASA got a look at the rainfall occurring within the storm. After Gert became post-tropical NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured an image as Gert was merging with another system.

NASA's ICESat-2 preps for laser tests

Lasers that will fly on NASA's Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2, or ICESat-2, are about to be put to the test at the agency's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

TDRS: An era of continuous space communications

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) When NASA created Tracking and Data Relay Satellite system in the 1980s, it revolutionized space communications. As NASA launches the 13th TDRS satellite, it looks forward to the next communications innovation.

NASA's LRO team wants you to wave at the moon

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) team invites the public to wave at the Moon on Aug. 21 as LRO turns its camera toward Earth.

NASA, ESA spacecraft track solar storm through space

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Using seven spacecraft, along with computer models, scientists have pieced together the journey of a coronal mass ejection from the Sun outward to Mars, Comet 67P, Jupiter and even the New Horizons spacecraft now beyond Pluto.

NASA spots Typhoon Banyan's large eye

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Typhoon Banyan's eye became visible again in satellite imagery from NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite. A visible image showed powerful storms tightly would around Typhoon Banyan's center as it moved through the Pacific Ocean.

NASA's GPM found Gert strengthening into a hurricane

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA looked at the rainfall rates within Tropical Storm Gert as it continued to strengthen and found the most intense rainfall on the tropical cyclone's eastern side. Just over 12 hours later, Gert would strengthen into a hurricane. As Gert has strengthened, the storm began generating dangerous surf along the US East coast.

Studying the Sun's atmosphere with the total solar eclipse of 2017

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A total solar eclipse happens somewhere on Earth about once every 18 months. But because Earth's surface is mostly ocean, most eclipses are visible over land for only a short time, if at all. The total solar eclipse of Aug. Show More Summary

NASA sees a tightly wound Typhoon Banyan

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Satellite imagery from NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite showed powerful storms tightly would around Typhoon Banyan's center as it moved through the Pacific Ocean.

NASA sees strengthening Tropical Storm Gert west of Bermuda

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Depression Eight (TD8) formed around 11 p.m. EDT on Saturday, August 12 about 260 miles northeast of the southeastern Bahamas. By 5 p.m. the depression strengthened into a tropical storm and was named Gert.

NASA sees Tropical Storm Jova being ripped apart

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Satellite imagery from NOAA's GOES-West satellite showed vertical wind shear was already tearing Tropical Storm Jova apart just two days after it formed. By August 14, the storm weakened into a post-tropical cyclone.

A NASA triple-view of Hurricane Franklin's fade out

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's GPM, Aqua and Suomi NPP satellites provided three different views of the now fizzled and former Hurricane Franklin.

NASA watches the Sun put a stop to its own eruption

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) On Sept. 30, 2014, multiple NASA observatories watched a failed solar eruption. Because scientists had so many eyes on the event, they were able to explain how the Sun's magnetic landscape shredded its own eruption.

New mission going to the space station to explore mysteries of 'cosmic rain'

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The ongoing fires that have been plaguing British Columbia for most of the summer are causing air hazards across the province and even parts of the US.

NASA sees formation of comma-shaped Tropical Storm 14W

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The fourteenth tropical cyclone of the Northwestern Pacific Ocean hurricane season formed about 200 miles away from Wake Island and a NASA-NOAA satellite saw it take on a comma-shape.

Day to night and back again: Earth's ionosphere during the total solar eclipse

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Three NASA-funded studies will use the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse as a ready-made experiment, courtesy of nature, to improve our understanding of the ionosphere and its relationship to the Sun.

NASA analyzed intensifying Franklin's rains before landfall

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Before Tropical Storm Franklin made landfall in east-central Mexico, the storm was intensifying. Two NASA satellites provided a look at the storm's cloud heights and extent and rainfall within.

NASA airborne mission returns to Africa to study smoke, clouds

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's P-3 research plane begins flights this month through both clouds and smoke over the South Atlantic Ocean to understand how tiny airborne particles called aerosols change the properties of clouds and how they influence the amount of incoming sunlight the clouds reflect or absorb.
