The cities of Boston, Massachusetts (above) and Providence, Rhode Island (below) appear as grey areas amidst the generally green terrain of this part of the northeastern United States of America.

Protruding out into the Atlantic Ocean is the Cape Cod peninsula, part of Massachusetts. Below it are the islands of Martha’s Vineyard (left) and Nantucket (right), also belonging to that state.

Some phytoplankton can be seen in Nantucket Sound, between the peninsula and the islands. Upon opening the full image, the green phytoplankton can be seen reaching much farther out to the east, into the Atlantic.
