A New Generation of Small Satellites Capture Hurricane Sally from Space

When Hurricane Sally hit the Gulf Coast region of the United States, a pair of tiny AeroCubes shot the eye of the storm.

Video shows 200 frames of raw short wavelength infrared images taken at 1-second intervals of Hurricane Sally.
The Aerospace Rogue CubeSats took short wavelength infrared (top) and visible (bottom) images of Hurricane Sally just after dawn, as the Category 2 storm made landfall on September 16 over the Alabama-Florida border.

We operate the only federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) committed exclusively to the space enterprise.
