Algeria and Spain - December 22nd, 2011

A strip of land along the coast of Algeria appear green and fertile, in contrast with the Sahara Desert to the south. Visible parallel to the coast are the Saharan Atlas Mountains. Near the center of the shoreline, just below the change in terrain, is the Chott Ech Chergui, a large endorheic salt lake (appearing tan in color, here).

To the north, the eastern part of the Iberian Peninsula can be observed in the upper left quadrant, with the Spanish Balearic Islands, including Majorca (the largest), Minorca (to its east) and Ibiza and Formentera (to its west), visible in the Mediterranean Sea at the upper center and right.
