This true-color Aqua MODIS image features the southwestern corner of Australia. The city of Perth is perched on the coast halfway between the top two points of fire, which are marked in red. Acquired October 22, 2002, the land south of Perth around the Darling Mountain Range shows the verdant green colors of summer, while farther inland, the ochre and tan colors highlight the more arid mountains and plains of the interior.
