Minimize Lake Chany, Russia

Merry Christmas and Happy 2018!

This winter scene from Proba-V shows Lake Chany (озеро Чаны) one of the largest lakes in Russia, located just north of the border with the Republic of Kazakhstan. It is a shallow, freshwater lake surrounded by wetlands, salt marshes and birch and aspen forests, making it an important stop for birds migrating southward from colder Siberia.

To mark the upcoming festivities, this special edition also features a compilation of all our special images from 2017. The Proba-V team is happy to wish all the best to you and your family for the upcoming holidays and the New Year!
