Happy Halloween!

From NASA's Earth Observatory:

Happy Halloween

One of our colleagues with the Landsat program noticed what looked to him like the head of a ghoul, zombie, or some other creature straight out of a Halloween horror story poking out from the coast of Venezuela in this false-color satellite image. Can you see it? Have you seen other Halloween-themed satellite imagery? What he was actually looking at was the Paraguaná Peninsula, which is connected to the coast by the narrow isthmus of Médanos. The Operational Land Imager on Landsat 8 acquired the image on August 28, 2013. With the band combination used to make the image, vegetation appears red. Have a happy and safe Halloween!
