Pictures of weather can be beautiful and dramatic.
And those are just the pictures taken from the ground.
Satellites high above the Earth give a very different view of the weather. These pictures are also beautiful and dramatic. But they contain valuable information as well. For example, satellite pictures of a storm forming out in the ocean show how strong the storm is, which way it is moving, how fast it is moving, and whether people living along the shore should be warned to get out of its way.
