Snowy Kamchatka

Snowy Kamchatka

On January 18, 2017, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image of the Kamchatka Peninsula. This remote part of Russia was covered in snow and unobscured by clouds. A string of volcanoes can be seen dotting Kamchatka’s eastern flank.
