Video description

What stays in Vegas? Not Vegas. This time-lapse video shows satellite views of a rapidly expanding Las Vegas since 1972. Development has been tinted red to make the growth easier to see. The images are from NASA’s family of Landsat satellites, which recently celebrated its 28th birthday.
