The Gulf of Taranto, Italy, from space

07-11-2021


Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features the Gulf of Taranto, Italy, as it appears from space.

Taranto, which is an important commercial port, is visible on the bottom right of the image.

The Aleppo pine forest of the Stornara Nature Reserve is visible in dark green along the coast. 

Above the forest, there are various patches of agricultural fields where a wide range of fruits, vegetables, and cereals are grown.
