Visible satellite is good at showing us clouds, like the eye of a hurricane. For instance, remember this photo above. The photo above was the eye of typhoon Yutu. Yutu made landfall in the U.S. territory of the Northern Mariana Islands back in October of 2018.

Now if you look above at the most recent satellite image from today. Look towards northern Illinois and eastern Iowa. You will see clouds, but then you will see something white that is not moving. This is snow that fell this past week in that area.
