Nueve de Julio Avenue in Buenos Aires, the capital and biggest city in Argentina. This avenue was named after Argentina's independence day (9 July 1816). The Obelisk, built in 1936, measures 67 meters high (220 feet) and commemorates the founding of the city.


A misty morning over the western Cordillera Blanca in Peru, with over 700 glaciers. Snow-capped peaks cast long shadows over the valleys (image acquired on May 18, 2019, NASA/ISS). The highest mountains in Peru are visible, including Huascarán (6,768 meters) above sea level. The peaks have been eroded by glaciers into steep curving ridges, known as cirques. The mining city of Huaraz is barely visible under the fog, but the Pierina Mine, an open pit gold mine, can be seen.
