Nicaragua and Costa Rica - March 23rd, 2011

Several Central American nations can be observed in this image: Guatemala (left), Belize (along coast, upper left), Honduras (along northern coast and to the right) and El Salvador (along the central part of the southern coast). A small part of Nicaragua is also visible in the lower right corner.

Sun glint highlights the contours of the northern coastline, along the Caribbean Sea, and the southern coastline, along the Pacific Ocean. Partially evident is the Gulf of Fonseca, in the lower right quadrant. The gulf borders El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua. Here, the sun glint highlights several islands in the gulf.
