Mount Shasta in northern California
Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at Mount Shasta in northern California.
This image was captured by astronauts on board the International Space Station over the Shasta-Trinity National Forest in the Cascade Range.
Mount Shasta, seen here poking out above the clouds, is a stratovolcano that formed in layers of lava and ash.
