  STS51B-052-0035 Agriculture, Southeast of Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A. May 1985
Dark brown rectangles scattered throughout the valleys reveal cultivated fields southeast of Phoenix where adequate water is available for irrigation. The key landmarks in the photograph—the three small desert towns of Casa Grande, Coolidge, and Eloy—are situated in a triangle in the midst of several small mountains. Several drainage features can be identified; however, the major water course is the Santa Cruz River, which is oriented in a southeast-northwest alignment.
