Earth from space: a glimpse at western Texas


Today’s Video of the Day comes courtesy of the European Space Agency’s Earth from Space series and features a look at western Texas using images from the Sentinel-2A satellite.

The images are in high-resolution color but appear mostly gray due to the lack of vegetation in the area. Some rivers and streams are visible, and in the upper left, areas of irrigated agricultural land.

In the upper right part of the image sits a section of hills in the Sierra Madera crater. This crater was formed less than 100 million years ago when a meteorite stuck western Texas.
