Clear Day over the Eastern United States

East coast cities along the I-95 corridor experienced a cool, dry day October 19, 2017. The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard the NOAA/NASA Suomi NPP satellite acquired this data as three spectrum channels sensitive to red, green and blue (or RGB) wavelengths of light, composed here as an image. In addition, atmospheric interference analyses using several other channels cancel out or correct blurry parts of the image.
