Italy - September 1st, 2009

The River Po meanders its way eastward across northern Italy, spilling greenish sediments through its delta into the Adriatic Sea. These sediments flank the coastline from Venice, north of the delta, to Ancona (in the bottom right corner of the full image). Also visible in the full image is the city of Trieste, near the border with Croatia, in the upper right.

To the north, the blue waters of Lake Garda are visible above the River Po at the foot of the Alps. Little snow can be seen on the mountains due to the warm summer temperatures. To the south, below the Po, the Apennines are also visible
