Image Caption:
STS040-72-094 This sunglint pattern photographed in the Sea of
Japan shows a great amount of detail related to circulation and
local sea traffic. A large eddy can be seen in the center of the
photograph, while numerous ship wakes are visible throughout the
scene. Several of the ship wakes are quite long and appear to be
deformed by current shear.
