MODIS Image of Panama
Recent True Color image of Panama from NASA Terra Satellite

Recent True Color image of Panama from NASA Terra Satellite, Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensor, September 22, 2008. As a region, this area is experiencing relatively clean air quality because of the cloud cover and rain, although isolated areas of polluted air may exist near urban or agricultural areas. The silvery reflection on the water is from the sun reflecting back towards the satellite.
