  STS070-710-004 Southeast Coastal Florida, U.S.A. July 1995
The corridor of the densely populated east coast of Florida between North Palm Beach (top) and Pompano Beach (bottom) contrasts with the dark blue Atlantic Ocean and the dull, uniform Arthur R. Marshall-Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge to the west. From an aerial perspective, many smaller cities that constitute the coastal region of Florida appear to coalesce into one large, intensely developed urban area. Vast, cultivated field patterns are discernible south of Lake Okeechobee (left margin). The faint straight lines (lower left corner) are part of a canal system that connects Lake Okeechobee with the southeast coast of Florida.
