A satellite shot of ocean currents around the Canary Islands is named NASA's Earth Photo of the Year in their annual contest. The image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on NASA's Terra satellite in June last year. In the pic, sunlight is reflected off of the ocean surface directly back at the satellite imager, revealing details about the water surface or circulation that are otherwise invisible.
