All of the Great Lakes are cloud free in this SeaWiFS image. The bright band along the southern shore of Lake Michigan is still evident. Similar coloration can be seen in the southern portion of Lake Huron, Lake St. Claire, much of Lake Erie, and in the outflow of the Niagara River into Lake Ontario.
