Daily Eye Wonder August 2012

A collection of some beautiful, strange, interesting, and fascinating pictures of weather, environment and space that might let you wonder.

Hurricane Isaac Approaches Second Landfall

A visible-infrared radiometer suite on a satellite captured this image of Hurricane Isaac early on August 29th minutes before making a second landfall near Port Fourchon, La., at 2:15 a.m. CDT. This particular satellite image detects light in a range of wavelengths and intensifies dim light signals (which in this case were also assisted by the moonlight).
