DEIMOS-1 Image of the week (acquired 11/4/2015): Macau and Perl River Delta

This image shows the city of Macau and the Perl River flowing into the South China Sea, China. Macau, is, along with Hong Kong, one of the two special administrative regions of the People’s Republic of China. The city is situated on the western side of the Pearl River Delta (upper right), bordering Guangdong province to the north and facing the South China Sea. Also visible in the image are Honk Kong (center right) and Lantau island (bottom right). The area is considered one of the most densely urbanised regions in the world and one of the main hubs of China’s economic growth.
