If you’ve tuned in­to cable news in the past two days, you know at least two things. First, there’s a winter storm in the midst of peak travel days for Thanks­giv­ing. And second, if you are trav­el­ing, pre­pare for the worst.

The per­spect­ive from space pla­cates these small troubles. Yes, a great deal of Amer­ica’s 43 mil­lion hol­i­day trav­el­ers will be frus­trated Wed­nes­day. But like this se­rene photo of Typhoon Haiy­an about to slam in­to the Phil­lipines, the photo above, taken by NASA, has a calm sense of or­der to it. The im­age was cap­tured Sunday, but the storm sys­tem con­tin­ues to hang over the United States this week.

Take a deep breath and re­mem­ber: Weath­er goes on, Thank­giv­ing or not.
