A satellite view of the Galapagos Islands
Today’s Video of the Day from the U.S. Geological Survey features the Galapagos Islands in the eastern Pacific Ocean.
Located about 620 miles off the coast of Ecuador, the remote islands were formed by volcanoes, and some are still active.
This view of the Galapagos Islands is captured from Landsat 8, which combines four photographs taken in March of 2015.
