Caption

Greater London, seen from space. In this false- colour view, urban areas are shown as blue; light blue shows mainly residential areas and darker blue mainly commercial regions. The River Thames is seen running across the centre of the frame. Pale green and orange areas are grassland, darker orange and red denotes arable land. The line of black features at centre left are reservoirs, just above which is Heathrow Airport. Central London features include Hyde Park (centre, rectangular), just above this is the more circular patch of Regent's Park. The U-shaped bend in the river right of centre encloses Docklands. This image was made by the Landsat satellite in May 1985.
