15 Breathtaking Photos from Space That Will Blow Your Mind
New Zealand From Above
The Copernicus Sentinel-3A satellite takes us over New Zealand, with the image centered over Cook Strait between the North and South Islands.
Captured on August 22, 2018, this true-color image shows the snow-covered Southern Alps stretching across the west coast of the South Island.
On the island’s east coast, bright turquoise colours in the Pacific Ocean suggest the presence of sediment being carried into the ocean by river discharge as well as algal blooms.
