Earth
Gemini 12 image of southern Florida and the Bahamas. Florida is at the lower right, covered by cumuliform clouds. The clouds at left are over the Gulf Stream. The 200 km long Andros Island and the Great Bahama Bank is just above the center of the frame, and below and to the left of that is the little Bahama Bank and Bimini Island. This southeast looking view was taken through the open hatch of the spacecraft. (Gemini 12, S66-62903 )
