Additional Details
Description: Is this a tiny creature on a microscope slide? No, but you are close. This is an image of a structure built by a multitude of small creatures. At about 21 kilometers(12 miles) wide, this feature is the largest coral structure in the southern Gulf of Mexico. The Arrecife Alacranes- or Scorpion Reef-supports wide biological diversity and is home to several endangered species.

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.
