NASA satellites capture many different perspectives of Hurricane Isabel. Twice a day, every day, two satellites fly over the planet capturing highly detailed images of the Earth.
This animated sequence shows eight days of high-resolution images of Hurricane Isabel. These images are so detailed that you can see the wind vortices inside the eye. These images were captured September 8, 10,11,12, 14, 15, 16, and 17, 2003. NASA's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instruments onboard NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites acquired the data for these images.
