A whitish haze drifts out over the Atlantic Ocean from the mid-Atlantic
United States. This Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) image acquired
on June 28, 2001, shows a shroud of aerosol draped over much of the
eastern U.S., including parts of Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.
The aerosol could be a mixture of pollution, smoke, and cirrus clouds,
and indeed many eastern cities, including Washington, DC, and
Baltimore, MD, were under poor air quality advisories June 26-29.
