Late-Fall Snowfall

A powerful late-season storm produced significant snow over New York state and through New England. Snow clearly outlines lakes, ridges, and other surface features, while the ice-free water of Lake Ontario and the Finger Lakes appears black/dark blue in this Terra/MODIS true-color image.

Nearly 20 years of Terra/MODIS

This true-color image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument aboard NASA’s Terra satellite. Terra was launched in December 1999, and all five instruments aboard this groundbreaking mission continue to provide valuable data after nearly 20 years.


NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.
