MISR Views New York and Southern New England

This MISR nadir-camera image includes New York City, site of the recently completed baseball playoff between the American League's Yankees and the National League's Mets. The Yankees defeated the Mets, 4 games to 1, in the first "Subway Series" to be held since 1956. The image was acquired on October 20, 2000 (Terra orbit 4475), one day prior to the opening game of the Series.

The Hudson River Valley and portions of southern New England, resplendent in fall colors, are visible in this image. Southwest of Albany are New York's Catskill Mountains, a popular wilderness and recreation area. The Catskills are part of the Appalachian chain.

MISR was built and is managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA, for NASA's Office of Earth Science, Washington, DC. The Terra satellite is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD. JPL is a division of the California Institute of Technology.
