12:10 pm: Clouds

Here’s a Press release from one of the projects that I support.

The NASA Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO), using its active lidar system, traced vertically through the layers of the atmosphere to find that the Australian bushfire smoke was lofting, or rising, to an astonishing 12 miles, an unusually high altitude that penetrates the lower part of the stratosphere.

It’s stuff like this that makes the travel and hours spent in grey and noisy computer rooms worthwhile. We can see smoke – FROM SPACE.
