You may have heard that much of America is experiencing a bit of snow…by which we mean that there's an historically epic blizzard blanketing a great swath of the East Coast. There could be as much as 20 inches of snow in New York City, and 25 in Washington!

Naturally, the internet is filled with images of the snow (as well as ominous warnings of how Snowzilla, or Snowmageddon, or Jonas, or whatever it's being called, is connected to climate change).

But nobody is going to be able to top these pictures, which have the infuriating advantage of being taken from space. Scott Kelly, the NASA astronaut who's spending a year at the International Space Station, tweeted some stunning shots of what the blizzard looks like from all the way up there. The NASA Goddard Space Flight Center has also been uploading a series of ridiculously cool pictures on its Flickr page. Take a look below.
