WTC Plume Visible from Space

It was one thing hearing that the astronauts on the Space Station could see the smoke plume from yesterday's attack on the World Trade Center. It's another to see the photos.

NASA photos from the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on the Terra Sattelite show the plume of dust and smoke very clearly. It's surprising how far and wide this shroud extends. The cloud goes directly south to New Jersey. Terra is about three times farther up in space than the Space Shuttle; it's certainly no surprise that the cloud would be a naked-eye object to the Space Station workers.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
