North America. Satellite-based image of the entire continent of North America. This view looks north- west. Water (blue), clouds (white), barren land (pink) and vegetation (green) are shown, as well as the Earth's curvature. The narrow isthmus of Central America (bottom left) separates the Atlantic (right) and Pacific (left) oceans, widening to the North, leading to Mexico and the continental USA (across centre). The Great Lakes (near centre, blue) lie on the US-Canada border, while the North American continent extends into the Arctic and the far North (centre right). The Caribbean island of Cuba is at lower centre, below Florida.
