Cloud vortex off coast of Alaska and Canada - September 23rd, 2009

A large cloud vortex swirls off the coasts of Alaska, USA, and Canada, near the Yukon and British Columbia Provinces. Most of the Canadian terrain is hidden beneath the clouds associated with the vortex.

However, some Alaskan land can be seen, including the snow-capped peaks of the Wrangell, Chugach and Saint Elias Mountains. The mouth of the Copper River can be spotted along the coast, spilling tan sediments into the Gulf of Alaska.
