Snow in Southern Central United States
acquired December 25, 2009 download large image (4 MB, JPEG, 5600x4400)

Snow cover sprawled across the southern central United States on December 25, 2009. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this true-color image the same day. Shaped vaguely like a giant boomerang, snow cover stretches from New Mexico across northern Texas and into eastern Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas. Snow cover also fills southeastern Colorado. Areas not covered with snow appear brown in this wintertime image.
