  STS028-076-057 Lake Sharpe, South Dakota, U.S.A. August 1989
Lake Sharpe and the big bend of the Missouri River are apparent in this east-looking, low-oblique photograph. Big Bend Dam is discernible just beyond the big bend of the river. Visible to the northwest are the Oahe Dam and Lake Oahe, built to provide hydroelectric power, flood control, irrigation for agriculture, and recreation. Circular-pivot irrigation field patterns are discernible east of the dam and along Lake Sharpe, especially near the big bend area of the lake.
