Heart-shaped island in the South Pacific
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency honors Valentine’s Day with a heart-shaped island in the South Pacific.
Moorea is a volcanic island located in the French Polynesia’s Society Archipelago around 20 kilometers northwest of Tahiti.
Moorea’s lush vegetation, which contributes to its tropical appearance, is highlighted in red for this image.
The island is also surrounded by a coral reef filled with an abundance of fish and corals that are high in diversity.
According to the ESA, this image from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 captures both the beauty and fragility of our planet.
