The Whole World In Your Hands

I stumbled upon this on Twitter earlier this week and it has really captured my attention. This photo by Astronaut Jeff Williams (who is currently residing in the International Space Station) is astonishing. It displays the entire west coast of the United States, from Washington State all the way down to the Baja Peninsula in Mexico.

I thought it might be a good idea to label some of the more distinguishable landmarks visible in the photo, see below...

Here is the high-resolution version of the photo with labels. You can also download the original photo from NASA's website.

It's cool that you can see so much of our country in such detail in one image.
