The storm system that moved through the northeastern U.S. dropped large snowfall totals up to a foot in southern New England to a couple of inches in Virginia.

A few hours after it was grappled by the crew onboard the International Space Station with the Canadarm2 robotic arm, Orbital Sciences' Cygnus cargo craft was installed on the Earth-facing port of the Harmony module, where it will remain for more than a month while the crew transfers the 1.5 tons of provisions and experiments delivered to the station by Cygnus.

NASA's Aqua satellite passed over low pressure System 91L in the Gulf of Mexico and captured infrared imagery that revealed a lot of uplift and strong thunderstorms in the eastern part of the storm despite a poorly organized circulation. NOAA's GOES-East satellite showed the large extent of the low pressure area stretching from Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula to Florida.

Kamchatka Surrounded by Blooms

The Kamchatka Peninsula of far eastern Russian was surrounded by life in late May 2013 -- at least the oceanic sort. Massive blooms of microscopic, plant-like organisms called phytoplankton spread green over the nearby waters. Phytoplankton typically support an abundance of other fish and marine life.

Atlantic Nor'easter Seen by Aqua
