When an avalanche occurs in as remote of a place like Canada's Yukon Territory, it's not always noticed. However, sometimes NASA's Earth Observatory gets lucky and snags a picture like this, showing this large flow of snow and debris on the US-Canada border near the Yukon Territory and Alaska. This was recorded by the seismic instrument network which caused scientists to wonder about what might have happened, but was confirmed by this imagery taken by NASA.
