Deep South Snow from Aqua Satellite

Posted by Dan Satterfield

NASA’s Aqua and Terra satellites with their MODIS sensor have produced some incredible images of Earth. I spent some time looking at the images today, and found a gorgeous view of the snow cover from Memphis to Atlanta.

I put a few landmarks on it but the fun is to find cities like Memphis and Chattanooga. Can you spot Birmingham, AL?

How about the jet contrail over Kentucky?

Hint: Use google Earth as a starting point.
