The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) shared a magical image of the Anti-Atlas Mountains in southwest Morocco on January 5, leaving the internet in awe.

The post was shared on NASA’s official Instagram account, featuring a view of the mountain range from about 708 km above the Earth’s surface. The mountain range was formed as the result of the collision of African and Eurasian tectonic plates around 80 million years ago.

“The photo was taken in infrared light — which is invisible to the naked eye — to highlight the different layers of rock and sediment, giving the tie-dye appearance,” NASA’s post reads.

Netizens were quick to shower the mesmerizing photo with love.
