The Great Red Spot is signature Jupiter.
Jupiter’s giant storm could hold two to three earth-sized planets.
We’ve got something, too:
A giant Nor’easter.
Could be the largest storm on earth, as I type this.
Watch this amazing timelapse.
A closer look:
Blizzard conditions and power outages reported.
Waves exceeded 10 feet.
Wind gusted up to 80 miles an hour, too.
Further evidence of my musing, “Is spring broken?”
Storm had @JimCantore written all over it.
Even other meteorologists called his name:
Meteorologist Cantore answered the bell.
He’s in there, trust me. Scraping snow off the pole:
Here’s his “live” encounter.
Can you imagine if this Nor’easter made landfall?
Its main “punch” remained out to sea.
So, unless George Clooney and the Andrea Gail make a comeback, this is not “The Perfect Storm.”
It’s vast, however.
Easily visible from space.
Probably from Jupiter, with binoculars or a small telescope.
Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is hundreds of years old.
Earth’s Nor’easter will likely “tire” in days.
The result: it’s news, but more weather and science news.
Some amazing science in-progress.
Impossible to pass up.
The visuals, alone.
One day, perhaps, an astronaut’s “live” coverage of The Great Red spot?
Until then, enjoying a great Nor’easter.
From the safety of satellite technology.
