Uploader comment: Bright blue patches decorated the North Sea in late May 2012, evidence of a phytoplankton bloom in the waters east of the United Kingdom. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite captured this true-color image on May 22, 2012 as it passed over the region.
