ESA's Proba-V minisatellite was having a look at Africa's highest peak Mt Kilimanjaro. Although it's practically on the equator, it's so high that its summit is covered with snow and ice. This is a false-color image taken in June of this year. As the altitude increases, the vegetation decreases. It's tropical at the bottom, but the light blue at the top represents the summit glacier.
