Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at a beautiful panoramic view of Canada.

This photo was taken by an astronaut on board the International Space Station while in orbit over the Gulf of Alaska.

The particular view faces the north, and includes Vancouver Island on the far west, the Coast Mountains in the middle, and the Rocky Mountains to the east.

The darker indentations are valleys that have been carved out by glaciers over the past 2 to 3 million years.
