The Clarence Strait from space
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features Clarence Strait in Australia’s Northern Territory.
The strait connects the Beagle Gulf in the west with the Van Diemen Gulf in the east and separates Australia’s mainland from Melville Island. The southernmost tip of Melville is visible in the upper part of the image.
The Northern Territory has a sparse population of around 140 000. Darwin, the territory’s capital and largest city, is visible in grey in the center of the image.
