Caption: Strait of Magellan. Satellite image of the Strait of Magellan and the city of Punta Arenas, Chile. North is at top. The colours approximate to natural tones, with bare ground and urban areas having a purple tinge. The white areas are clouds. The Magellan Strait (black) separates the South American mainland (left) from the island of Tierra del Fuego (right). The strait is about 530 kilometres (km) long and 3-24 km wide. Punta Arenas (centre left) is one of the world's most southerly cities. Image taken by the American Landsat satellite in February.
