  STS078-736-030 Greater Cincinnati Area, Ohio, USA June 1996
The muddy Ohio River makes a northerly loop and flows between the larger city of Cincinnati (north bank of the river) and the smaller city of Covington, Kentucky (south bank) near the center of the picture. The Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport with its parallel runways and taxiways (highly reflective area) is west of Covington on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River. Sections of several Interstate Highways (thin, light lines) including Interstate Highways 71, 74, 75, and 275 (the beltway that encircles Cincinnati and Covington) and the bridges that cross the Ohio River are visible at various points throughout the image. Cultivated field patterns can be identified in the rural landscape and on some of the floodplains of the rivers that flow through this region. The darker terrain consists of undeveloped, usually hilly, forested land.
