Earth images from European Space Agency (ESA)

Greece and the Aegean Sea, mosaic image from European Space Agency's MERIS Satellite

Great collection of photos from the European Space Agency (ESA), from their Earth from Space: Image of the Week series.  This one is a mosaic of Greece, the Balkans and the Aegean Sea.

Surely this could be made into a bell ringer/warmup.  Check out the images for other geographic forms, and great photos of them.  Nose around the ESA site, there are some great finds.  Can you quickly identify this image, for example (without looking at the name of the photo file)?

    I see pyramids.

    And the circular arrangement of islands and some ridges makes me wonder if there’s an old crater in the Aegean Sea.
