Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at a landslide that has buried a famous California highway.
The image was captured by the Operational Land Imager on board the Landsat 8 satellite.
“This is a large slide preceded by smaller slides, which is not uncommon,” said Thomas Stanley, NASA geologist and researcher. “Much of the California coastline is prone to collapse, so it’s fortunate that this landslide happened in an unpopulated location.”
