Outer Aleutian Islands 

NASA image acquired June 2, 2010

Beneath the cloud cover in this image captured by the MODIS on the Terra satellite on June 2, 2010 are the outer Aleutian Islands. The Aleutians are a chain of islands that extend from Alaska toward the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia.

The clouds trailing off the islands make interesting vortex patterns. The vortices are being formed by wind-driven clouds interacting with the highest points of the islands. The wind causes the clouds to flow around in the large, spinning eddies you see here.
