STS056-076-010 Augusta, Georgia, U.S.A. April 1993
The street grid pattern of Augusta, barely discernible in the center of the photograph, is obscured by widespread vegetation and foliage. Visible are a section of the southeast-flowing Savannah River and a segment of thin, linear Interstate Highway 20 north of Augusta, which connects Augusta with Atlanta to the west and with Columbia, South Carolina, to the northeast. The dark floodplain of the Savannah River widens dramatically south of Augusta. The concentration of dark, forested land (right side of photograph) is part of the extensive Savannah River Nuclear Power Generating Facility.
