USA - December 29th, 2010

The Florida Peninsula stretches across this image, bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean. Inland, a notable body of water is Lake Okeechobee, appearing brownish in color towards the southern tip of the peninsula.

At the northern end of the peninsula, by the border with Georgia, many condensation trails (or contrails) can be seen criss-crossing the skies. These series of lines are vapor trails from passing aircraft.
