STS062-098-163 Tonopah Test Range, Nevada, U.S.A. March 1994
The only recognizable manmade feature in this desert landscape is the highly reflective, narrow runway of the Tonopah Test Range, visible on the left side of the photograph. Apparent also are five highly reflective, dry lakebeds. A few isolated patches of cumulus clouds and their shadows are visible along the eastern side of the valley, and the snow-covered, higher elevations of the Cactus Range appear at the top of the photograph. The remainder of the landscape consists of eroded, low mountains and hills.
