More snowy stuff

I've been waiting for an excuse to post this picture -- the second snowstorm in a week before winter has even officially started will definitely do.

This looks like an abstract photo collage, but it's actually a satellite picture from the European Space Agency of snow sweeping into Scandinavia. The dark tree-like silhouettes at the top are the fjords of Norway; that's Denmark in the lower righthand corner.

The ESA's Observing the Earth photo archive, here, is worth bookmarking. It's a nice reminder that there are Hubble-worthy wonders much closer to home.

Very cool snow posts. Love seeing Scandinavea, or parts of it, frosted like a cookie.
