Image Caption: STS026-43-82 Hawaiian Islands This 70mm southward-looking view over
the Pacific Ocean features the Hawaiian Islands chain. The islands
perturb the prevailing northeasterly winds producing extensive cloud
wakes in the lee of the islands. The atmospheric haze in the Hawaii
wake is probably a result of the continuing eruptions of Kilauea
volcano on the southeast coast. From the lower right corner in a
diagonal directed upward to the north are the islands of Nihau (1),
Kauai (2), Oahu (3), Molokai (4), Lanai (5), Maui (6), Kahoolawe (7),
and Hawaii (8).

In this view of the entire Hawaiian Island Archipelago (21.0N, 157.0W), the islands perturb the prevailing northeastewrly winds producing extensive cloud wakes in the lee of the islands. The atmospheric haze within the wake is a result of the near continuous eruptions of Kilauea volcano on the southeast coast of the big island of Hawaii.
