Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at the Gulf of Taranto of the coast of Italy.

The gulf measures 90 miles in length by 90 miles in width and is located just off the coast of southern Italy. The gulf is surrounded by the Italian regions of Apulia, Basilicata, and Calabria.

The city of Taranto is known as an important port that holds steel factories, oil refineries, and shipyards.

This image was taken by an astronaut onboard the International Space Station.
