Chinese Gobi Desert From Space (Photo of the Day)

The black spots below are not problems with the photography, but rather lakes in what is normally the arid Gobi Desert in the Chinese Autonomous Region of Inner Mongolia.

The image was taken by the ESA Proba mission on September 29, 2005, using the satellites Compact High Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (CHRIS).
