Henderson Island in the South Pacific


Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at Henderson Island located in the South Pacific Ocean.

Henderson Island has been named a UN World Heritage site and is also one of the world’s biggest marine reserves. But sadly, even though it is completely uninhabited, the island is one of the most plastic polluted places on Earth.

These images were captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite.
