  NM21-766-071 Eastern Long Island, New York Spring-Summer 1996
A good portion of eastern Long Island can be seen in this northeast-looking view. The large circular area to the left of the center of the image is the Brookhaven National Laboratory. Long Island Sound, an arm of the Atlantic Ocean, covers the upper left quadrant of the image, and the Atlantic Ocean is visible in the lower right quadrant of the image. The beaches of the Fire Island National Seashore extend from the bottom center of the image terminating to the right of the center of the image. The runways of Suffolk County Airport are discernible in the upper right portion of the image. Major highways are visible traversing the area from west (bottom left) to east (upper right). Also noted is the thinning of urban areas to more agricultural and woodland land patterns from west to east on the image.
