Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory features the Serengeti plains of Africa, which span more than 12,000 square miles.
Every year, the Serengeti hosts the largest natural animal migration on the planet when about 1.5 million wildebeest move around in search of pasture and water.
This migration is one of the natural wonders of the world, and attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists.
The image was captured on February 4, 2018 as by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite.
