Caption: Mont Blanc, satellite image. North is at top. Mont Blanc (centre) is western Europe's highest mountain, at 4807 metres tall. The large body of water at upper left is Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Mont Blanc itself lies on the French-Italian border, with France to the west (left) and Italy to the east. The Alps, of which Mont Blanc is a part, is a mountain range formed over the last 100 million years by the northward movement of the African tectonic plate relative to the Eurasian plate. This image was taken by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) on the Landsat 7 satellite on July 30th 2001.
