This true-color Aqua MODIS image of France was acquired January 24, 2003. Also visible are England (top left), Belgium (top right), the Netherlands (top right corner), and Spain (bottom). The Mediterranean Sea occupies the bottom right corner, while the Bay of Biscay (left) and the English Channel (top) form France’s western and northern shores. The city of Paris is visible as a large gray smudge just to the left of the east-pointing column of clouds on the upper right side of the image.
