STS073-742-066 Hanford Area, California, U.S.A. October 1995
The color infrared film used for this photograph, presenting green vegetation as red, features the vegetation and field patterns in this agricultural region around Hanford in the San Joaquin Valley. An extensive network of irrigation ditches and canals provides sufficient water to create productive farmland in this otherwise arid landscape. The dual runways of Lemoore Naval Air Station are visible near the center of the photograph. (Refer to STS-073-711-045, a natural color photograph that shows the same general area.)
