Uploader comment: The combination of clouds and wind created a spectacular canopy across the Bering Sea and northern Pacific Ocean in early spring, 2012. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite captured this true-color image on April 17 as it passed over the region at 22:40 UTC (1:20 pm local time).
