Venice, Italy by ASTER
September 27, 2003
The city of canals, Venice stretches out across numerous small islands in a marshy lagoon along the Adriatic Sea in northeastern Italy. The saltwater lagoon stretches along the shoreline between the mouths of the Po (south) and Piave (north) Rivers. This image from the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer on the Terra satellite shows the watery city in spectacular detail, using false-color image enhancements that bring out the details of water and vegetation.
