Earth from space: Houston, Texas


Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features a Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellite view of Houston, Texas.

The city appears in shades of white and grey, while the surrounding land appears in shades of yellow. The Gulf of Mexico, as well as the bayous that dissect Houston, are dark blue.

Buffalo Bayou is a slow-moving river that cuts through the city before joining Galveston Bay, the largest estuary in Texas. The Port of Houston spreads across the northwest section of the bay

Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States, with a population of over two million people.
