Banks Peninsula on New Zealand’s South Island
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features the Banks Peninsula on the South Island of New Zealand.
The peninsula was named after British biologist Joseph Banks who sailed with Captain Cook. It consists of two overlapping extinct volcanoes – the Lyttelton Volcano and the Akaroa Volcano.
Banks Peninsula was formed by several volcanic eruptions that took place around eight million years ago.
