It covers an area of 2,250 square kilometres and was formed as a result of water filling a 65 kilometres wide crater from an impact that occured roughly 70 million years ago. Imaged by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board the Landsat 8 satellite on 22nd July 2014. The OLI sensor detects wavelengths across 9 spectral bands. This image was created using infrared, red and green spectral bands. It depicts an area measuring 170 kilometres across.
