(22 April 2013) --- One of the Expedition 35 crew members aboard the Earth-orbiting International Space Station took this vertical image covering most of San Diego County, the most southwestern county in the 48 contiguous United States. Its county seat and largest city is San Diego. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, San Diego County had a population of 3,095,313 people, making it the second most populous county in California, with the first being Los Angeles County. The United States Naval Air Station at San Diego is visible, as are the nearby United States Naval Reservation and the Coronado Amphibious Base. The United States - Mexico border is just out of view at the right edge of the frame. Credit: NASA
