Individual Great Lake true-color sectors available at the CIMSS Direct Broadcast site
The CIMSS Direct Broadcast site is now routinely creating True-Color imagery over 6 different domains: The Great Lakes, and each of the 5 individual lakes: Superior, Huron, Michigan, Erie, Ontario (Click on each image to see the domain). File name examples are shown here. Suomi NPP and NOAA-20 are in similar orbits, about 50 minutes apart, so it’s common to be able to create an animation, as shown below with Lake Erie. Note that the colors in the toggle below, and in the Basin-wide toggle above, can show differences because of view angles. In particular, the slanted view angle over Lakes Michigan and Superior in the 1729 UTC Suomi-NPP image in the toggle above allows for the true-color imagery to show a thin layer of smoke over portions the those lakes.
If NOAA-20 or Suomi-NPP only samples part of the lake, then a partial image is created, as shown below from NOAA-20 pass viewing Lake Ontario at 1639 UTC on 4 November. (NOAA-20 viewed the entirety of Lake Ontario at 1818 UTC).
