1.6 µm - Snow/Ice Band - 1 km resolution - During the day band 5 can be used to differentiate ice clouds and snow (relatively dark) from liquid water clouds (relatively bright), such as fog and stratus. It can also detect very hot fires both day and night.

Band 5 is a visible channel and is therefore black during nighttime hours.
