Captured by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiomenter (ASTER), the image uses near-infrared, red, and green wavelengths to show snow-covered peaks and ridges divided by a series of rivers.
This image captured by the Multi-angle Imaging Spectroradiometer (MISR) allows you to see Echo’s current location in 3-D! Echo appears to be enjoying the majesty of a mountain range this week!
This image taken by MODIS onboard NASA’s Terra satellite shows a strong distinction between the haze caused by air-pollution to the south, and the area to the north which is protected from the pollution by a mountain range containing some of the world’s tallest peaks.
