Today’s Image of the Day from NASA shows the Earth in September of 2017, when several large hurricanes were moving across the Atlantic Ocean.

NASA has used Earth observations from space for six decades to help inform decisions about public health, disaster response and recovery, and environmental protection.

This image was created by assembling images captured by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument on the Suomi-NPP.
