The image captures part of the Greenland ice sheet. Covering about 80% of the continent's surface, this is the second largest mass of ice in the world, after Antarctica, and spans about 1.7 million square kilometers (larger than the state of Amazonas).

Together, Antarctica and Greenland's glaciers contain more than 99% of Earth's freshwater ice and are disappearing each year, raising concerns about rates of ice melt and substantial sea level rise in the coming decades.
