Flying 250 miles above the Earth aboard the International Space Station has given me the unique vantage point from which to view our planet. Spending a year in space has given me the unique opportunity to see a wide range of spectacular storm systems in space and on Earth.
The recent blizzard was remarkably visible from space. I took several photos of the first big storm system on Earth of year 2016 as it moved across the East Coast, Chicago and Washington D.C. Since my time here on the space station began in March 2015, I’ve been able to capture an array of storms on Earth and in space, ranging from hurricanes and dust storms to solar storms and most recently a rare thunder snowstorm.

Astronaut Scott Kelly just signed up for Tumblr all the way from space. Outer space. So far, this the coolest weather blog of all time.
Why no photos of the full view? Why so much cropping and such low resolution photos? Because NASA is hiding the truth about the size and shape and everything else in between. The 4th REICH lives and is thriving.
