LOCATION Direction Photo #: STS073-756-94 Date: Oct. 1995
Geographic Region: USA-TENNESSEE

STS073-756-094 Tennessee River, Tennessee October 1995
The Tennessee River, 650 miles (1045 km) long and the principal tributary of the Ohio River, is seen flowing generally northward as it heads toward the Kentucky border and Kentucky Lake. The extensive dark landscape shows a region of rugged, hilly, forested land in this section of west central Tennessee. The thin, light-colored linear feature that roughly parallels across the bottom of the image is Interstate Highway 40, major east-west ground transportation artery through central Tennessee. The other east-west oriented light-colored line that parallels across the center of the image is U. S. Highway 70. Both highways have bridges that can be seen crossing the Tennessee River.
