Uploader comment: Sometimes, a satellite-eye view reveals a beautiful image that imitates art, while also providing data for scientists. Such was the case on January 21, 2013 when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite flew over Chile and captured this true color image of complex banks of clouds.
