April 24, 2017
On April 18, 2017, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite acquired a true-color image of a sunny spring day across the northeast United States.
The state of Maine sits in the northeast section of the image, with the province of Quebec, Canada along the northwestern edge. The large lake is Lake Ontario, one of the Great Lakes that lie on the boundary between Canada and the United States. Part of Lake Erie, another Great Lake, can be seen on the western edge of the image. South of Lake Ontario are a series of thin, long lakes that run roughly form north to south. These are the Finger Lakes of the state of New York, which derive their name from the similar appearance to fingers stretching out roughly parallel from a hand.
> The Appalachian Mountains are the primary feature of the southwestern section of the image, which can be seen snaking over the landscape from West Virginia, Virginia, and Kentucky (in the southwest) towards the northeast. The Delaware Bay can be seen in the south-central section of the image. Following the coast northward, Long Island runs parallel to the Connecticut coast. The gray pixels at the western edge of Long Island marks the city of New York, New York.
