Hurricane Sandy turned west in 2012 before making landfall in New Jersey. Without microwave sensor data, forecasters would have called for the storm to make landfall 24 hours later than it did and to strike Maine. Credit: National Weather Service

The first wind data from ESA’s Aeolus satellite released Sept. 12 shows three quarters of one orbit. The image shows large-scale easterly and westerly winds between Earth’s surface and the lower stratosphere, including jet streams. As the satellite orbits from the Arctic towards the Antarctic, it senses, for example, strong westerly wind streams at mid latitudes (shown in blue). Closer to Antarctic, Aeolus senses strong westerly winds circling the Antarctic continent in the troposphere and stratosphere (shown in blue left of Antarctica and in red right of Antarctica.)
