CaptionsAstronauts onboard the International Space Station often observe small, otherwise unnoticed water bodies on the ground due to their unusual colors. Such a lake with color linked commercial activity is Lake Gribben, located to the southeast of Ishpeming in Michiganís Upper Peninsula. Iron ore is extracted from the Tilden/Empire Mine complex visible to the north of the lake.
