Incredible photos from space show off the historic East Coast ‘bomb cyclone’ – AOL Weather

The East Coast “bomb cyclone” on Thursday looks both beautiful and sinister from space.

While scientists have been tracking storms using satellites in orbit for decades, they now have a brand new tool at their disposal: GOES-16, also called GOES-East.

The brand new satellite — which wasn’t available to scientists last winter — is one of the most powerful weather-watching tools in history, able to take snapshots of the storm every minute.

The result? Some truly astonishing images.
