You can see Michigan's fall colors from outer space

Posted By on Tue, Oct 31, 2017 at 11:27 AM

Alright, so these "fall colors" aren't as breathtaking as taking a drive to northern Michigan in the middle of fall, but Michigan from outer space looks pretty damn cool during this time of the year.

People venture up high mountain peaks to enjoy the warm colors of the fall leaves. Here’s a view from a bit higher. This Earth satellite image shows the autumn colors as they sweep across the eastern United States and Canada. According to The Foliage Network, fall colors were at or just past their peak in much of upstate New York and the upper peninsula of Michigan the day before this image was captured. As seen in the Adirondack Mountains and Catskill Mountains in New York, peak color comes to high-elevation areas before surrounding lower-elevation areas.

The lovely people at NASA posted a photo on their official Instagram account of Michigan, southern Canada, and northeast U.S.A. t0 show just how different the earth looks once all the trees die and the leaves change their colors.

While most of the lower peninsula looks pretty light brownish, northern Ontario and some of the U.P. look fantastic from space with the changing colors.
