On a rare fog free day of August 2015, NASA’s Landsat 8 satellite flew over San Francisco Bay and produced this stunning true color image offered by Customaps. San Francisco Bay is in the U.S. State of California, dominated by the large cities San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose. The waterway entrance to San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean is called the Golden Gate.
You can easily see both man-made structures - the Golden Gate Bridge at the top left of the image, the Bay Bridge more to the right, Alcatraz in between, and Oakland International Airport inside the Bay - and natural features such as the Marin Headlands (north of the Golden Gate Bridge) and the red and green colors of the salt ponds in South San Francisco Bay.

- PEEL & STICK WALL MURALS:
Our wall murals are made of a self-adhesive thin polyester fabric material. They have the look and feel of a very thin canvas and do not require use of wallpaper paste or any extra glue for hanging. Our map murals can easily be removed, leaving no trace or sticky residue on 99% of any surface! They can be moved and re-applied over and over again, as the adhesive does not weaken or strengthen over time. Stick your map for a day – or stick it for a decade – still removes with no issues. Our material is green, nontoxic and safe. We protect them with a transparent laminate, which allows you to clean your map with a damp sponge.
Note: it is recommended to apply your wall mural on LOW or NO VOC paints.
