This video begins just southeast of Alaska, and the first city that the ISS passes over is San Francisco and the surrounding areas. If one looks very carefully, you can spot where the Golden Gate Bridge is located: a smaller strip of lights just before the city of San Francisco, nearest to the clouds on the right of the image. Southern California can be seen to the right. The space station then passes over Mexico and the Yucatan Peninsula to the left. Very obvious lightning storms can be seen off the coast of Mexico. Finally, the ISS flys over the western coast of South America.
