Cirrus spissatus over the Maldives

Figure 1

I got fed up with programming in JavaScript and HTML, so I thought I’d take a look at the world using Worldview from NASA and see what I could see. Beautiful cirrus plumes across the Indian Ocean (fig 1).

Figure 2

Strange goings on in the Sahara desert south of Cairo (fig 2).

Figure 3

What looks like medium level altocumulus, but’s probably a much lower sheet of stratocumulus to the north of the Canary Islands (fig 3).
