Argentina - September 15th, 2010

The southern end of Argentina covers the left side of this image. Sediments can be seen by the coastline, particularly that of the province of Tierra del Fuego at the very bottom.

Further east, the Falkland Islands (or Islas Malvinas) can be observed amidst some patches of clouds. East Falkand (right) is cloud free, while West Falkland (left) is partially obscured. They are located 250 nautical miles (463 km; 288 mi) from the Argentine mainland.
