  STS073-716-084 Missouri River and Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.A. October 1995
Metropolitan Kansas City and the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers near the downtown area are featured in this south-looking, low-oblique photograph. Kansas City, the starting point for many expeditions by settlers to the western United States in the 1800s, is today a major commercial, industrial, and transportation center in a rich agricultural and livestock producing region. Visible clockwise from the Smithville Reservoir north of the city are Independence, the home of former U.S. President Harry S. Truman, and Lake Jacomo.
