Additional Details
Description: Slessor Glacier in Antarctica flows between the angular promontory Parry Point on the top left of the image and the Shackleton Range on the lower right. The purple highlights are exposed ice. Strong winds blow away the snow cover and expose lines that indicate the glacier flow direction. Rock outcrops next to the glacier also exhibit some of this bare ice.

Earth as Art 4 (EAA4) comprises 37 stunning images captured by Landsat 8, the newest Landsat Program satellite.

Landsat satellites acquire detailed views of the Earth's surface that scientists use to determine how our planet's landscapes are changing over time. In addition to their scientific value, however, many Landsat images are simply lovely to look at.
