ISS007-E-12858 (17 August 2003) --- This view was taken by an Expedition 7 crewmember onboard the International Space Station (ISS). Sunlight reflects off of the lakes of Quetico Provincial Park, Ontario. The area lies between Lake Superior and Lake of the Woods, just north of the USA-Canadian border. The long vertical clouds in the image are condensation trails produced in the wake of jet airplanes.
