This true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from September 19, 2002, shows the beautiful contrasts of the terrain of the southern African country of Namibia. The bright orange sands along the coast are the Namib Desert, while rocky platueaus and escarpments tinged with green vegetation can be seen farther east. Off shore, a large bank of clouds is draped over the South Atlantic.
