Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows an unusually clear sky over the Great Lakes region of North America as the spring thaw begins.
The snow line that is visible through Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ontario will recede and the meltwater will fill the lakes.
By the time this picture was taken, ice cover was reduced to just 20 percent across the lakes.
The image was captured on March 25, 2019 by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite.
