STS068-174-170 Northeast Texas, U.S.A. October 1994
Discernible in this oblique, southwest-looking photograph of northeast Texas are three watersheds--the Trinity River Basin with three large reservoirs [Cedar Creek Reservoir, Lake Ray Hubbard with Interstate Highway 30 crossing its southern end, and Lake Lavon (top right of photograph)]; the Sabine River System with Lake Tawakoni and Lake Folk Reservoir (center of photograph); and the much larger Red River Watershed with dark, east-flowing wooded stream channels, including Lake Cooper, a newly created reservoir, and the South Sulphur River. Visible are part of urban Dallas (upper right corner) and widely scattered cumulus clouds.
