Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at a frozen Lake Erie, which is currently 93.3 percent iced over.

This false-color image was created using data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the Aqua satellite to differentiate between snow, ice, and clouds.

Currently, 57.9 percent of the surfaces of the Great Lakes are covered with ice.
