Full Size Great Lakes

North East US/Great Lakes

This is a 4x magnified view from a NOAA satellite. Note the high resolution the NOAA APT signal can provide (2-3 miles). Islands in Lake Champlain are easily seen as are Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. The Finger Lakes of NY and many rivers are clearly visible. Cities show up as darker patches because they are warmer than the surrounding areas -- Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Washington DC, NYC, Boston, as well as many other cites can be spotted in this image.
