ISS007-E-16876 (9 October 2003) --- This view featuring the Salton Sea was taken by an Expedition 7 crewmember onboard the International Space Station (ISS). This wide image shows a portion of drought-stricken southern California, including the urban sprawl of San Bernardino and Riverside, the agricultural development of the Imperial Valley and the Salton Sea sporting a huge swirl, speculated to be an algal bloom. The coastal region is obscured by fog.
