Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at lush vegetation in the San Francisco Bay area.

The city of San Francisco is visible on the peninsula in the center-left portion of the photo, while the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers can be seen at the top flowing into the bay.

This image was captured by the Operational Land Imager on board the Landsat 8 satellite.
