Nome, Alaska (83,475 bytes) ( 544 x 568 )
The city of Nome lies on the southern Seward Peninsula coast of Alaska, on the Bering Sea. The current population of 3800 is dwarfed by the boom engendered by the discovery of gold in 1899. Ten years later, Nome was the largest city in the Alaska Territory with a population of more than 20,000. By 1910, with the exhaustion of most of the gold, the population had fallen to 2600. The image was acquired on May 23, 2014, covers an area of 8.2 by 8.5 km, and is located at 64.5 degrees north, 165.4 degrees west.
