The site of the now-extinct Lake Texcoco in Mexico City
Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency’s Earth from Space series and features a look at an area of Mexico City that used to be home to the now-extinct Lake Texcoco.
These images were captured by the KOMPSAT-2 satellite over eastern Mexico City in an area known as the Valley of Mexico. Over the course of several centuries, the lake was drained and the area is now home to several smaller reservoirs and ponds.
