Caption: Global temperatures, May 2009. Infrared satellite map of average daytime air temperatures at 3000 metres elevation worldwide in May 2009. The colour-coded map shows temperatures in degrees Celsius, ranging from 40 degrees Celsius (dark orange) down to minus 30 degrees Celsius (purple). Features seen here include warm tropical areas, milder temperate regions (yellow and green), and cold polar regions. The data was obtained by the AIRS (Atmospheric Infrared Sounder) instrument as part of the EOS (Earth Observing System) mission, on NASA's Aqua satellite.
