(NEW YORK) — As the Northeast digs out from a wild winter storm, NASA has released images showing what the snow and strong winds looked like from space.
An image from a satellite operated by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association showed the winter storm system near its peak as it covered the Northeast around 1:45 a.m. ET on Tuesday.

The winter storm was so intense that it managed to obscure the bright lights of the big cities as the high cloud tops moved through the area.
New England was hit the hardest by the winter storm, which blanketed the area with more than 30 inches of snow in some areas.
