USA - December 28th, 2011

The bright white parts of this orthorectified image mainly belong to the city of San Francisco (lower left quadrant) and the San Francisco Bay Area, a populated region that surrounds the San Francisco and San Pablo estuaries in Northern California. The region encompasses major cities and metropolitan areas of San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose, along with smaller urban and rural areas.

Several bridges can be observed as white lines spanning the estuaries, including the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge (east of San Francisco), the Golden Gate bridge (north of San Francisco) and the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge (northeast of San Francisco), the northernmost of the east–west crossings of the San Francisco Bay in California, USA, connecting Richmond on the east to San Rafael on the west end.
