Image Caption: STS039-73-44 Manicouagan. East looking view of a frozen Manicouagan
Reservoir (51deg. 23'N, 68deg. 42'W) taken in April 1991. Manicouagan
is located in the heavily forested region of the Canadian Shield in
Quebec. Manicouagan gained attention as an impact crater during the
Skylab missions because of its easily discernable circular shape. The
diameter of the crater is 100 km and the age is 212 +/- 2 m.y. T283C
