Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at Chilubi Island in northern Zambia.

Chilubi Island is located on Lake Bangweulu and has both an odd shape and lighter-toned sand that allows it to stand out from its surroundings. The island has roughly 60 miles of coastline, allowing for plenty of access for fishing.

This image was captured by an astronaut on board the International Space Station.
