This site is fun. It is up to the minute views of the earth from the sun, moon, and other points in space. Click on the different links for awesome views of the planet. Then click on specific points and get a close-up view of the region you want to see.
As a shortcut for the animated loop--- for all of us on dialup, instead of spending eternity for the main page to load up with all it's interactive images--
I go for a specific location, for example: http://images.intellicast.com/WxImag..._None_anim.gif (hxxp://images.intellicast.com/WxImages/RadarLoop/rno_None_anim.gif), the "rno" in the link referring to the location in this case, Reno.
For the PNW, instead of the "rno", choose "tiw" (Wash) or "rdm" (Ore) or "myl" (Idaho).
northern Rockies "lwt" or "riw"
upper plains "bis", "stc", and "dsm"
Texas takes three "bro", "row", and "sat"
Louisiana "lit" and "msy" (home of the cajun otter)
noaa forecast for one state: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/view/prodsBy...&prodtype=zone (hxxp://www.nws.noaa.gov/view/prodsByState.php?state=mn&prodtype=zone)
or instead of "zone"..... prodtype= "discussion" for synopsis, or "hourly" for the latest weather report for the state.
