  Earth from Space: Arid Atacama

Earth from Space: Arid Atacama
Image credit: ESA

Uploader comment: The southern Atacama Desert is pictured in this Envisat image, with the border of Chile (west) and Argentina (east) running down the middle. The Atacama is believed to be the driest desert in the world, and the lack of cloud cover in this image highlights the dry climate.
