Image Caption: STS047-96-87 Niagara Falls in sunglint

This scene is similar to STS61A-034-019, but the water catches the
sunglint which nicely highlights the shorelines. The viewing angle is
to the west. Although the Falls cannot been seen, the rougher waters
of the rapids below the falls in the narrows of the river reflect the
sun brighter (1). The Welland Canal is easy to pick out at 2, west of
the River. T580A
