NASA's Photo of the Day for November 26th, 2010

Image taken from NASA's website.

NASA website comments:
A beautifully clear day over Canada allowed the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Aqua satellite to capture several striking multiple true-color images of the island of Newfoundland on November 12, 2010. Off the west coast, the island is separated from the Canadian mainland by the Gulf of St. Lawrence and, at the narrow northernmost point, the Strait of Belle Isle, while all the other Newfoundland coasts face the Atlantic Ocean. Near the northern tip of the eastern most peninsula, the city of St. John's is visible as a long gray smudge on the land.
