Hurricane Michael in 3D

This image from NASA’s Multi-Angle Imaging Spectroradiometer (MISR) shows a three-dimensional view of Hurricane Michael and combines two of MISR’s nine camera angles. Using 3D red-blue glasses, you can see the 3D effect. Bright “clumps” in the image are groups of strong embedded thunderstorms.

More about MISR

MISR views the sunlit Earth simultaneously at nine widely-spaced angles, and provides radiometrically and geometrically calibrated images in four spectral bands at each of the angles. MISR is one of five instruments aboard NASA’s Terra Earth observing satellite, which launched in 1999.


NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.
