  STS094-753-055 Miami, Florida July 1997
The Greater Miami area can be seen in this spectacular south-looking view. Near the center of the image, the runways of Miami International Airport are discernible. East of the airport across Biscayne Bay, the city of Miami Beach is visible. Directly south of Miami Beach is the island of Key Biscayne. The far eastern portions of the Everglades are discernible to the west of Miami. The Miami area is one of the most popular and famous resort regions in the United States. Near the upper right portion of the image, the city of Homestead can be seen. In 1992 Hurricane Andrew, a category 4 hurricane, destroyed most homes and other structures while passing directly over Homestead. Hurricane Andrew is one of the most destructive hurricanes ever to make landfall in the United States.
