Mexico from LightSail 2
This image of Earth, looking east across Mexico, was captured by LightSail 2 on 12 July 2019 at 22:11 UTC. The tip of Baja California can be seen at left. Tropical Storm Barry, in the Gulf Of Mexico, is visible in the upper right. The Moon is visible near the center-right edge of the picture; it appears rectangular due to its phase at the time and the camera’s limited number of pixels.
