Today’s Image of the Day comes courtesy of the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at two salt lakes in western Australia.

Lake Hazlett and Lake Willis are located in the Great Sandy Desert. After the occasional flood, the lakes fill with water and then evaporate, leaving behind salt deposits in funky layers.

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