STS056-110-080 Eddystone Point, Tasmania, Australia April 1993
The northeastern tip of Tasmania is observed in this northeasterly view that extends from Waterhouse Point in the northwest to the Bay of Fires along the east coast. Key features in this color infrared image include Eddystone Point (small peninsula that juts eastward into the Tasman Sea) and Ringarooma Bay which is located on the north coast of Tasmania and faces the Banks Strait. The white-looking areas along the coastline are sandy beaches and dunes further inland. A few cumulus clouds have formed primarily over the densely vegetated, forested lands (darker, more uniform-looking patterns). The pinkish colored landscape are areas where the forests have been cut down. This color infrared image presents the green range land and some cultivated fields as a pink signature.
