Queen Mary Coast of Antarctica

February 23, 2010
This image, captured by the MODIS on the Terra satellite on February 15, 2010 is a study in white. Across the top of the image is a bank of clouds. Just below, sea ice swirls in the black sea. The white mass of land, taking up most of the bottom half of the image is the Queen Mary Coast of Antarctica. Some cloud cover blends with the white of the snow and ice below.

The Queen Mary Coast borders the Davis Sea and lies south of Australia.
