Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows the return of a green landscape in southeastern Australia after nearly three years of drought.
According to NASA, New South Wales had its lowest amount of rainfall in almost a century from January 2017 through October 2019. Lakes dried up and millions of fish died.
This year, southeastern Australia has received above-average rainfall every month through May.
The image was captured in June 2020 by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite.
