The main image shows part of South Africa, stretching from its border with Mozambique, across Swaziland, and southward down the coast.

Sediments can be seen in Maputo Bay, near the central right edge. The bay is situated between mainland Mozambique and the Machangulo Peninsula and Inhaca Island.

Moving inland, a fire can be seen in South Africa, west of the bay and close to the left edge. The blaze is easily identified in the close-up. Smoke released from it blows to the southwest.
