  Title: Florida, USA
  Description:
  In this view of Florida (27.0N, 81.0W) looking south, Cape Canaveral and
  part  of the Kennedy Space Center launch complex can be seen, under cloud
  cover, on  the Atlantic coast.  Note the meteorological effect of clouds
  over the land  mass but not over water bodies such as Lake Okeechobee. 
  Cuba is near the  edge of the image as are the Bahama Banks.  The effects
  of a downcoast  current can be observed bringing turbid water offshore to
  Cape Canaveral.
