This image shows a photograph of San Francisco taken as the International Space Station passed 383 km overhead on November 10, 2000. It was taken by astronauts looking out one of the station windows using 35 mm film and a 400 mm lens. The view includes the area stretching from the Golden Gate Bridge in the north to the San Mateo Bridge on the southeast.

In the full-resolution version major landmarks are easily distinguished, and wider streets such as Van Ness and Geary can be easily distinguished from the less distinct grid of smaller streets. Digitized from film at high resolution, each pixel in this image represents 14.6 m on the ground.
