Shades of autumn seen from space!

A special thanks to the UW-Madison Satellite Blog
for this animated photo. (If it doesn’t animate, just click on it.) It’s fascinating to see how the forest green colors of Northern Wisconsin change into browns and oranges.

Even though our trees haven’t switched colors yet, can you guess why think the colors change so much in Northeastern Iowa and Southern Wisconsin? If you thought “corn” you thought right! The majority of land in these parts is covered with cornfields. The corn plants lost their green color in early September, revealing the orange color seen from space.
