Mexico - July 4th, 2010

The peninsula of Baja California runs diagonally across this image from the upper left to lower right corners. Only the upper part of the peninsula, the Mexican state of Baja California, can be seen – the state of Baja California Sur lies further south beyond the right edge.

Clouds line the western coast of the peninsula. A cloud vortex can be observed just southeast of Guadalupe Island, or Isla Guadalupe, a volcanic island located 241 kilometers (150 statute miles) off the west coast of Baja California, in the Pacific Ocean.
