The beauty of a blue petunia or maybe even a blue Calla Lilly. Thanks ! These brighten our days here on Earth.

The "Sugarland Express" got this one is near Vilankulos in Mozambique, Africa. The colors are, simply put, spectacular!!!

Thanks Astro Clay. Here's a summary I wrote to explain what's in the image.

The US coast is full of such features, searching at high resolution then … painful ;-)

Your "hint" caused me to search Australia first :-) but when I didn't find it there, I decided to give Africa a try,even without seeing your tweet to Pam. The topo looked cold and remote, which narrowed down the places to Africa :-)

Thanks for the sved me a lot of searching the coast of USA!

Orbits repeat and so the scenes repeat. Particularly when they are so impressive. Almost identical.

PC0101 2000 days ago

How come? Searching Africa at random, what if Australia? Or seen my tweet to Pam with the link to the Soichi pic? ;-))

Also small airstrip and a few roads. Looking at Google Earth...lots of karst in lots of places.

PC0101 2001 days ago

Found it. Quite a different continent, each of the guesses is FAR off …

New to me too. These are patterns of sand on the seabed, illuminated by sunlight from above. Dark blue streaks are due to underwater currents making the sea deeper (and appear darker).

Looks like karst topography so I'd go with Florida...though I can't find it, also karst in Texas :-o
