The National Severe Storms Lab tweeted this today:
GOES-14 Rapid Scan movie of Hurricane Sandy

Unfortunately, it’s only the visible images, so we can’t see the storm’s development and movement at night, but it’s still one of the most impressive weather videos I’ve ever seen. Keep in mind, too, at the start of the video Sandy is under strong wind shear, which usually destroys tropical cyclones – an incredible storm.
