  STS078-734-007 Wichita Falls, Texas, USA June 1996
The urban area of Wichita Falls can be identified by the numerous intersecting roads and highways near the center of the image. A section of Interstate Highway 44 that extends northward from Wichita Falls to Lawton, Oklahoma, can be traced across the landscape, especially where the highway crosses the Red River. The combined runways of Sheppard Air Force Base and the Wichita Falls commercial airport are visible north of Wichita Falls. Large cultivated field patterns on both the Oklahoma (upper right) side and the Texas side of the Red River are visible. Several meandering tributary streams (dark, linear features) of the Red River are visible. Lake Arrowhead with a light-colored sediment plume in the southern section of the lake can be seen near the southern edge of the picture. A smaller, unnamed reservoir is also visible immediately southwest of Wichita Falls.
