Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at Shasta Lake in northern California.

Shasta Lake is California’s largest reservoir and third-largest body of water, after Lake Tahoe and the Salton Sea. It is held by the Shasta Dam, which is the ninth tallest dam in the United States.

This image was captured by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on board the Terra satellite.
