Caption

Popigai, Russia, satellite image. Popigai (dark brown) is a 90 kilometre wide depression caused by a meteor impact that occurred roughly 35 million years ago. The intense heat and pressure caused by the impact caused graphite in the rock to turn into diamonds. Imaged by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board the Landsat 8 satellite on 14th August 2013. 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 130 kilometres across.
