Petermania (XIV): Zig-zag

Petermann spent most of Friday cloaked in heavy cloud, and re-emerged mid-day Saturday to be just barely captured in this false-colour Terra image. At the time, it was making its closest approach to dry land since it left the High Arctic, having tacked back towards the southwest after four days of southeasterly movement. Just barely visible here in red, it was hugging tight to the eastern shore of Newfoundland's, uninhabited Bell Island.
