West Michigan Satellite Picture

modis lake michigan    Here’s the MODIS Lake Michigan satellite picture from this Good Friday afternoon.  Click on the image or click here to enlarge.  There are some scattered cumulus clouds inland (you can see their shadows) and a few clouds over Lake Michigan west of Oceana Co.  You can see that Gull Lake still has an ice cover.  The deep inland lakes of Wisconsin are still frozen over (Geneva Lake, Green Lake).  There is still a fair amount of ice in Green Bay and up toward the Mackinac Bridge.

Also, check out the MODIS pictures for Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.  Here’s a wider shot of the entire Great Lakes.  Here’s a MODIS image of wave clouds off of Padre Island, Texas and a satellite image of Tristan da Cunha, one of the most remote places on Earth in the South Atlantic.

    Good Day,

    Nice! Personally, I am hoping that Col. Chris Hadfield posts a pic of the Great Lakes at night from the ISS on his Facebook page…

    And you can see the difference between Muskegon Lake (which is partly open water now) and White Lake (still frozen over except around the edges and where the river empties into it, in town).

    I see the tornado scar is still visible northwest of Green Bay. How ling has it been there?
