The river’s unusual brown or reddish hue was likely driven by runoff occurring upstate. The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite captured these natural-color images of the Hudson River and East River. Both images are rotated and north is at right. The top image shows the area on September 12, 2011. The bottom image shows the same place about a year earlier, on September 2, 2010. In September 2010, the water is navy blue. One year later, the water is muddy brown, and the brown hue appears more intense in the Hudson River than in the nearby East River.
