STS066-124-046 Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota, U.S.A. November 1994
The twin cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, separated by the Mississippi River, are featured in this northwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. The Minnesota River enters the Mississippi east of Charles Lindbergh International Airport (left center). Minneapolis, west of the Mississippi River at Saint Anthony Falls, and Saint Paul, on the east side, are ports of entry and major industrial and rail hubs in a vast grain and cattle area. The state capitol in Saint Paul is modeled after Saint Peter's Basilica in Vatican City and has the largest unsupported marble dome in the world. Numerous lakes and parks are scattered throughout Minneapolis and Saint Paul. The Saint Croix River, east of Saint Paul, is barely discernible (bottom left to the bottom center).
