Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at cloud streets and sea ice extent in the Barents Sea.

This year, Arctic Sea ice extent peaked on March 17, 2018 at 5.59 million square miles, the second-lowest maximum on record.

This image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the Aqua satellite.
