Thurston Island in Antarctica
Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency’s Earth from Space series and features a look at Thurston Island.
Thurston Island is the third largest island in Antarctica, measuring 134 miles long and 56 miles wide with a total of 6,062 square miles in area. It was initially thought to be a peninsula and it wasn’t until 1960 that scientists realized it was separated from the mainland.
These images were captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellite.
