An image of the guitar forest was acquired on Nov. 2, 2007, by NASA’s Terra satellite. The false-color image was created with red, green and near-infrared light.

In the fertile lowland plains of Argentina (the Pampas), a guitar-shaped forest grows amidst the farmland and has become a wonder for pilots and passengers flying over the region. It turns out the forest is visible from space, too.

The project was started in 1979 by Pedro Martin Ureta, who created the piece of land art on his farm so it could be viewed from an airplane. According to news reports, the forest is composed of more than 7,000 cypress and eucalyptus trees. The forest stretches nearly a kilometer (two-thirds of a mile) across the landscape.
