NASA's Suomi-NPP satellite captured this image on the day the Bering Sea storm peaked in intensity. Minutes later, NASA's CloudSat flew over the storm in a straight path, marked in red in the Suomi-NPP image. CloudSat's instruments recorded what the storm would look like if viewed in cross-section, from the ground up. You can see CloudSat's data in blue, below the Suomi-NPP photo. It's a 12-mile-tall cake slice of the storm.
