Uploader comment: In late January, 2013 the calm waters of the Indian Ocean reflected the rolling waves of the atmosphere just above – and sometimes touching – its surface. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite captured this true-color image of atmospheric gravity waves on January 30.
