Australia, satellite image

Australia. Satellite image of the Earth, set against a background of stars, centred on the island continent of Australia. North is at top. Clouds (white) are seen in the atmosphere. On the surface, seas and oceans (blue) surround the land. Land cover ranges from vegetation such as forests and grassy plains (green) to arid areas such as deserts, mountains, and scrublands (brown). Most of Australia is an arid desert, with rainforests in some coastal areas. To the north are the islands of the Malay Archipelago, to the east the Pacific islands, and to the south-east New Zealand (all covered in clouds). This image, from 2001, combines data from a variety of satellite sensors (AVHRR, SeaWiFS, MODIS) at a range of wavelengths

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a stunning satellite image of Australia, set against a mesmerizing backdrop of stars. The island continent takes center stage in this image, with its distinct shape and features clearly visible. As we gaze upon the Earth from above, we can observe the intricate details of our planet's geography. The atmosphere is adorned with fluffy white clouds, while vast seas and oceans surround the landmass in shades of deep blue. From lush green forests to arid deserts, Australia displays a diverse range of land cover. It is predominantly an arid desert country, but pockets of rainforests thrive along its coastal areas. Beyond Australia's borders lie other fascinating regions: to the north are the islands of the Malay Archipelago; to the east stretch out Pacific islands; and to the southeast lies New Zealand—all shrouded by clouds in this particular moment captured in 2001. This awe-inspiring image was created using data collected by various satellite sensors at different wavelengths. It offers us a unique perspective on our planet's topography and weather patterns. Science Photo Library has masterfully combined these elements into a single photograph that sparks curiosity about Earth science and exploration.
