  Title: San Francisco and Bay Area, CA, USA
  Description:
  This cloud free color infrared view of San Francisco and Bay Area, CA
  (38.0N,  122.5W) is unusual because the city is normally concealed from
  view by clouds  and fog.  Gray tones represent urban areas and the red
  toned areas are  vegetated.  Within the city, parks easily stand out from
  the well-developed  parts of the city as enclaves of color.  The trace of
  the San Andreas fault  shows as a straight valley running across the San
  Francisco peninsula.
