Look out your window and you’ll likely get a clear visual of Thursday’s powerful winter storm. However, the most incredible visual of the “bomb cyclone” may be from outer space.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) tweeted out a time-lapse video of the  storm using (recolored) footage from its GOES-EAST weather satellite. The video is nothing short of stunning — and intense.

If you want to see more, NOAA will continue to post updated visible and infrared images from its satellite throughout the day on its website.
