Rusty-red sands of the Simpson Desert contrast with the green
vegetation of the MacDonnell Ranges in southeastern Northern Territory,
Australia. The folded sandstone and quartzite ridges stretch roughly
230 miles (380 km) wide and rise to over 4,000 feet (1,219 meters)
high.

Alice Springs, the third-largest town in Northern Territory, sits on
the eastern side of MacDonnell Ranges. This remote town is located
roughly at Australia’s center and just south of the Tropic of
Capricorn. The color of the soils surrounding Alice Springs and across
the Simpson Desert give this region the nickname “Red Centre”.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board
NASA’s Terra satellite acquired a true-color image of Australia’s Red
Centre on April 14, 2021.
