Additional Details
Description: What looks like lightning arcing through an ominous cloud is actually a dry landscape of rocky buttes in southern Utah and northeaster Arizona. River channels flow north from Arizona into the San Juan River. The light vertical feature at the top of the image is referred to a Comb Ridge, a jagged fold in the Earth's crust called a monocline.

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.
