Image Caption: An oblique view of the Pacific Coast of Southern California (34.0N, 118.0W), including the Los Angeles and San Diego areas, as seen from the Skylab space station in Earth orbit. The visible coastline extends from San Diego northwesterly to Santa Barbara. The Mojave Desert occupies much of the photograph. This view also includes the Channel Islands off the coast. Note that the higher elevations of the mountains are covered with snow.
