NASA shared a stunning image of the "gorgeous" Anti-Atlas Mountains that were "formed as a result of the African and Eurasian tectonic plates colliding about 80 million years ago."

NASA said, "Let's take a colourful trip about 440miles (708km) above Earth's surface via an orbiting satellite, shall we? 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.”
