Satellite Image of the Week 2021 #30

I took this image Saturday evening over southern California

This image is taken in true color. At first, your eye is drawn to the boundary between visible and infrared imaging. The jaggedness of this line has to do with digitization, as each of these represents individual images.

Ignore that for now, but instead focus on the dark lines over California. Those are shadows from the tiny clouds at sunset. Notice how each shadow begins at a cloud and is projected over a large area, due to the low sun angle.

We really do live on a beautiful planet!

Thank you for reading this post!
