Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at Monterrey, the capital of of the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon.

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

The area is perhaps most famous for Mount Silla, also known as Cerro De La Silla. Mount Silla has also been nicknamed Saddle Hill, as the mountain’s ridges and peaks look very much like a saddle when viewed from the west. Mount Silla has been officially declared a natural monument according to the World Commission on Protected Areas.
