Next time you fly to the City by the Bay, make sure to ask for a window seat. You'll be amazed as you peer out from your bird's eye view. On a clear day, you can see massive rainbow salt flats of San Francisco Bay painting the landscape.
In fact, they're so big that NASA can even see them from outer space!
Bright fuchsia pinks, pumpkin orange, and green waters run together like oil paints.
You're probably wondering how they got there.
While they might look natural, the ponds are actually the result of man-made salt ponds used to extract and harvest salt from the Bay's water.
According to NASA, more than eighty percent of San Francisco's wetlands have been sectioned off for salt mining, which the city has supported since 1854.
Cargill, a local company, has operated the wetlands since 1978 and has sold thousands of acres of land back to California and the Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge.
NASA's Earth Observatory reported that these coordinated efforts provide a "valuable habitat for birds, fish, and other wildlife. The wetlands will contribute to better water quality and flood control in the bay, and open up more coastline for public enjoyment."
As Bay water is slowly introduced into the wetlands, the vivid color of the salt ponds will change.
Since this is likely a long-term project, you can still take time to catch an amazing view of this San Francisco wonder.

On Wednesday, March 17, a 75-year-old Asian woman was attacked while shopping in San Francisco, but was able to fight off the attacker, according to CNN.
The woman, who has been identified as Xiao Zhen Xie, received "two serious black eyes" and a swollen wrist from the incident, and is no longer comfortable leaving her home, according to a GoFundMe page set up by her grandson, John Chen.
But the donations they have received so far have already greatly exceeded the goal, with more than $650,000 raised from over 22,000 people.
On Thursday, Chen released a statement saying his grandmother's condition is slightly improving, but she is still struggling mentally and emotionally, and they are "extremely touched by how supportive the community has been."
