Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at Lake Garda, the largest lake in the country of Italy.

Lake Garda measures 34 miles in length and varies in width from anywhere between 2 and 11 miles. It is located roughly halfway between the cities of Milan and Venice where the southern Alps intersect with the Po River Valley.

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