Aleutian clouds

Date:14 May 2014 Tags:, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

These cloud formations were seen over the western Aleutian Islands. Their colour variations are probably due to differences in temperature and in the size of water droplets that make up the clouds.

Spanning 3,7 km, this image was captured by the Landsat 7 satellite on 1 June 2000.
