NASA’s Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) instrument has shown the extent of damage cause by the Newcastle-Moore tornado that occurred on May 20, 2013 in Oklahoma, USA. The image of the scar that was left by the tornado was obtained as a false colour by ASTER.

The image showed vegetation as red, water as dark blue and roads and buildings are gray whilst white and bare field also appeared tan. In the thermal image, there is an indication of the tornado’s track across, from left to right.
