Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, NASA has released images of a region in Antarctica called Granite Harbor ― a cove near the Ross Sea. (See main image above.) These pictures ― taken by the Operational Land Imager on the Landsat 8 satellite on March 5 ― offer details of what is apparently green slush ice, according to NASA’s Earth Observatory site.
