This image focuses on the western United States of America, although part of northwestern Mexico, including the northern Baja California Peninsula and land along the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California) is visible at the bottom.

Of particular interested in the USA is the Great Central Valley in California, parallel to the Pacific Ocean. Most of the California coastline is bordered by thick cloud cover. Further inland, the Great Salt Lake and nearby bright white salt flats can be observed in the state of Utah.
