Eyes on the Bay Satellite Maps

Click on an image date or data map/date to change the view.

  • The percentages listed in the True Color Image menu refer to the visibility based on cloud cover over the Chesapeake Bay water surface:
    • 0% = zero visibility due to near total cloud cover
    • 100% = excellent visibility due to clear conditions.
  • Data maps may lag by several days due to processing time, but will update at later dates.

Red outlined pixels on the visual images indicate a possible fire or thermal anomaly.
