NASA has released two high-resolution satellite animations of the two storm systems that merged to form the blizzard that has buried the northeast.

In the first clip, satellite imagery from NOAA’s GOES-13 satellite shows the two systems headed for a collision off the mid-Atlantic Coast from Feb. 6-8th.

The second clip taken from Feb. 7- 9th shows the two systems coming together and creating a blizzard of historic proportions in New England.
