  STS034-074-077 Northeast Florida, U.S.A. October 1989
Man’s impact on northeastern Florida is vividly documented in this low-oblique, north-looking photograph of the area surrounding Jacksonville and the extensive highway network radiating outward—north-south-oriented Interstate Highway 95, east-west-oriented Interstate Highway 10, and northeast-southwest-aligned U. S. Highway 301. Downtown Jacksonville lies along the northwest shore of the Saint Johns River at its 90°-turn eastward. Runways of three airports are visible—Jacksonville International Airport north of the city; Cecil Field Naval Air Station southwest of the city; and Jacksonville Naval Air Station south and immediately west of the dark, wide, north-flowing Saint Johns River. Two highly reflective areas (bottom left) are probably limestone quarries. The darker features scattered across the low-lying, flat terrain are wooded swamps.
