Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at suspended sediment swirling in Lake Erie.

Though not uncommon during springtime, the sediment was especially kicked up after a spring snowstorm resulted in quickly melting snow pushing through rivers and streams and emptying into the lake.

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