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. Images like this
are sent several times a day.
