Valentine Island in western Australia
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features Valentine Island off the coast of western Australia.
The tiny island is located in the King Sound, a large gulf and inlet of the Indian Ocean.
According to the ESA, the King Sound has one of the highest tides in Australia, reaching a maximum tidal round of around 11 to 12 meters.
The port town of Derby can be found on the eastern shore of the King Sound near the mouth of the Fitzoy River. This area of Australia’s Kimberley Region is known for having a coast lined with mangroves that support an abundance of wildlife including birds and fish.
