Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory some of the most incredible waves in the world, as seen by Landsat satellites.

“With more than 370,000 miles of coastline on Earth, there are plenty of places where epic waves build up, curl over, and hurtle toward the shore.- much to the thrill of surfers,” says NASA. “There are some places where these waves are so magnificent that they can be seen from space.”

“With the broad perspective of satellites, we can see how these iconic waves develop into the world’s tallest, longest, fastest, and heaviest.”
