English: This true-colour picture shows the nuclear reactor. The large body of water in the left half of the image is the north-western end of a 12-kilometre long cooling pond, and water channels run through the network of reactor-related buildings west of the pond. Reactor number four appears on the west end of a long building north-west of the right-angled L-shaped water channel. Mixing with the network of abandoned buildings, water channels, and roads, areas of green appear—a testament to the vegetation that was growing around the site some 20 years after the accident.
