Scattered fires were burning on Cuba (bottom) on April 26, 2002. To the center right of the image are the Bahamas, and at top the southern tip of Florida, including Lake Okeechobee (dark circle) and the Florida Everglades. The dense vegetation of the Everglades comes to an abrupt halt to the east, where a grayish strip marks the location of West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami.
