Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at the incredibly lush and green vegetation that surrounds the Russian settlement of Surgut.

Surgut is located along the northern bank of the Ob River in western Siberia, which conditions the soil to grow such healthy vegetation.

This image was captured by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board the Landsat 8 satellite.
