3D Moon! This is an anaglyph of an Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) Wide Angle Camera (WAC) mosaic of the lunar nearside taken at low-Sun conditions. You will need 3D stereo glasses to see it pop off your screen! The two perspectives that make up this anaglyph were generated by draping the same low-Sun WAC mosaic of the lunar nearside over the Global Lunar DTM (Digital Terrain Model) 100 m topographic model (GLD100) with two different sub-Earth points. Planetary scientists use anaglyphs to visualize the 3D structure of planetary surfaces. For example, NASA's HiRISE team has over three thousand anaglyphs of the Martian terrain available for scientific study and public use. This type of visualization is helpful with the intuitive and qualitative interpretation of a scene by revealing geologic relationships that are not obvious from a single 2D image.

A Satellite View of One Side of the World Today A Quiet Atlantic and an Eastern Pacific Hurricane -- This full-disk visible satellite image of the Atlantic and eastern Pacific Ocean from NOAA's GOES-East satellite was captured today Oct. 28 at 1:45 p.m. EDT. In the northern hemisphere, clouds associated with a frontal system lay draped over the eastern Atlantic, stretching up into the North Atlantic. In the northwestern U.S. another area of low pressure has moved onshore and was centered over Washington State bringing clouds and showers to the region. A cold front that dropped south from Canada is draped from Montana east through North Dakota and northern Minnesota, bringing clouds in that region. Further south, in eastern Texas there is a low pressure area generating clouds while high pressure brings clear skies and sunshine to Florida. In the southern hemisphere, much of South America appears quiet with fair weather clouds, and some convective thunderstorms in countries like Colombia Tropically-speaking it's quiet today in the Atlantic Ocean basin. There's one tropical wave that extends from 16 north to 58 west to 7 north and 53 west. It is moving west at 15 knots and is embedded within a high, moist, environment. There are a few other notable features but no other tropical waves. It's a different story in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, however, because Hurricane Raymond is spinning over 650 miles away from Mexico's Baja California. At 11 a.m. EDT Hurricane Raymond's maximum sustained winds were near 85 mph/140 kph and weakening. The center of Hurricane Raymond was about 645 miles/1,035 km southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California. Raymond is moving into an area with stronger wind shear, cooler sea surface temperatures and drier air: three factors that will lead to its dissipation in the next couple of days. In the southern Atlantic Ocean spins an area of low pressure east of Chile, while west of Chile in the southeastern Pacific spins another low over open waters.
