Today’s Image of the Day from NASA features a majestic view of snow-capped mountains in the Andes. 

This mountain range, which is one of the largest in the world, separates the South American countries of Chile and Argentina.

The image was captured on May 19, 2018 as the International Space Station (ISS) orbited 257 miles above the western coast of South America.
