King Sound in northwest Australia • Earth.com

Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at King Sound and the Indian Ocean on Australia’s northwest coast.

King Sound is a large gulf that measures about 75 miles in length and experiences some of the highest tides in Australia. The muddy water around the edge of the gulf is due to sediment kicked up by the tides and the Fitzroy River.

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