Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory features a “superbloom” of poppies and wildflowers across Antelope Valley in Southern California.
The poppy season in this desert region depends entirely on precipitation. After a very rainy winter season, the brilliantly colored flowers have exploded this year.
The image was captured on April 2, 2019 by NASA Armstrong aerial photographer Jim Ross from from a T-34 airplane.
