USA - September 23rd, 2010

The east coast of the USA appears covered in haze in this image. The haze is thickest by the coasts of the states of Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina (from north to south). Golden green sediments are also present along the shorelines of those states.

Further inland, the Appalachian Mountains can be seen, running parallel to the coast. Beyond these mountains, to the northwest, is Lake Erie. Greenish sediments are present in its southwestern end.
