Canada - March 25th, 2011

Snow dusts the landscape of southeastern Quebec, Canada, both north and south of the Saint Lawrence River (left edge) and Gulf of Saint Lawrence (top center, right). In the full image, part of the northeastern United States is visible as well. States such as Massachusetts and Rhode Island are snow-free.

The white circle in the upper left corner is the frozen Manicouagan Reservoir, sometimes called “The Eye of Quebec” due to its ring shape. It has this unusual shape because the lake lies in the remnants of an ancient, eroded impact crater from an asteroid.
