USA – August 27th, 2012

Popcorn clouds frame the shoreline of Lake Superior (above) and part of Lake Michigan (right), two of the North American Great Lakes, in this image of the USA and Canada. While Lake Superior appears mostly sediment-free, some faint swirls of sediment can be observed in the southern half of Lake Michigan. Visible on the left side of the image is a thin, smoky veil from fires in western USA that has blow across the country to the midwestern states.
