  STS068-164-126 Saginaw Bay, Michigan, U.S.A. October 1994
Saginaw Bay, an inlet of Lake Huron, is featured in sunglint in this southwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. Fed mainly by the Saginaw River (near top center), the bay is a fishing and recreational area. Bay City, at the mouth of the Saginaw River, is a major Great Lakes port of entry and shipping center in southern Saginaw Bay. A small portion of Lake Huron is discernible (bottom left). Visible are the runways of Paul B. Wurtsmith Air Force Base (right of bottom center); Huron National Forest to the west; Midland, west of the Saginaw River (right of top center); and Holloway Reservoir (upper left in sunglint).
