Thank you for your inquiry.

We suggest using the Worldview Tool. https://earthdata.nasa.gov/worldview

Below are some examples over the area of interest, using the Corrected Reflectance (True Color) data from MODIS and VIIRS.

• Terra/MODIS: https://go.nasa.gov/37EoXe6
• Aqua/MODIS: https://go.nasa.gov/3qPlctO
• Suomi NPP / VIIRS: https://go.nasa.gov/37DFSNW
• N20/VIIRS: https://go.nasa.gov/3qLq1o1

Please note that MODIS only sees the surface during cloud-free weather.
