The peninsula of Baja California cuts diagonally across this image from the upper left to lower right, separated from the Mexican mainland by the Sea of Cortes, also known as the Gulf of California.

A loose cloud vortex can be seen nestled in an indentation of the western coastline of the peninsula, in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. That segment of the shoreline belongs to the municipality of Comondú, which has a land area of 16,858.3 km² (6,509.03 sq mi).
