Autumn Colors – How Fast?

I came across two really cool satellite images today, comparing the natural colors of Northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan over the span of a few days.

You can see how much color change has taken place, seemingly at the drop of a hat.

Granted, this shot spotlights an area that gets to winter a little quicker than most of the rest of the country. Still, it’s astounding that the transition happens this quickly.
