Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at a circular cloud formation over Lake Balkhash in Kazakhstan.

While the atmosphere can certainly be a rugged place, it can also create beautiful symmetry, as this formation happens to be a perfect circle.

This image was captured on May 22, 2018 at 12:05 local time by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the Terra satellite.
