Chantal

Apparently, NASA is tracking the tropical storm/Hurricane Chantal.  Though dangerous, she is very pretty.  I thought I’d share a couple of shots.

Hint: For the real impact (and if computrons and internet throughput allow) click on these to zoom. They go up twice. ‘Cuz NASA rocks that way.

Here’s the second one from the 10th.

Both of these are awesome photos, and I thought that looking at them closer together gives one a great idea of how these storms develop– as well as how aesthetic they are.

Everything here I got from the NASA website- including the attribution text.

Here’s a link.  There they have lots more info, some doppler images and the like. Really nifty.

All this is brought to you by the fact I’m still working on my conversion article. Wish me luck…
