Astronaut Sergey Ryazansky captured from ISS Samborombón Bay, the estuary of La Plata River, Buenos Aires of Argentina, and Montevideo of Uruguay.
Samborombón Bay is a bay on the coast of Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. Located at the Río de la Plata’s mouth on the Argentine Sea, it begins about 160km southeast of Buenos Aires and is about 135km wide. Samborombón Bay exhibits an unusually high density of shorebird species, many of which use the bay as a stopping point in their seasonal migrations. It also serves as an important nursery habitat for fish species in the Río de la Plata estuary system. The bay and the adjoining coastal region are included in a number of protected areas because of the well preserved Pampas grassland and wetland ecosystems that characterize the area.
The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
