Oranje Rivier, Noordkaap, South Africa
On 6 December 2016, we had our second PROBA-V contest image. We received 28 answers, ranging from the Niagara Falls to Kazakhstan to the Grand Canyon.
However, neither of these answers were correct…
The false-colour image showed the southern part of Namibia and northern part of South Africa. The Oranjerivier borders the two countries and meanders from east to west.
Further, the Riemvasmaak Community Conservancy is visible as the large yellow area in the image lower part, while the Augrabies Falls National Park and the city of Upington are visible along the Oranjerivier in the image right part.
