    Default Looks nice, but...

    That image sure looks nice but those golds are sands in fact and I assume that sapphire is the remains of saltwater(salt-water-algish things)

    Interesting, "still largely unexplored", but found some activities.
    Hope to explore it some day ; )

    Yeah... looks a LOT like sand, especially the further east you pan over.
