Image Caption: STS062-098-062 Jackson, Mississippi, U.S.A. March 1994
This southeast-looking photograph features Jackson, the capital of Mississippi, southeast of which is the intersection of east-west-oriented Interstate Highway 20 and north-south-oriented Interstate Highway 55. The Pearl River and its broad floodplain extend generally northeast-southwest on the eastern edge of the city. Sediment-laden Ross Barnett Reservoir, created by damming the Pearl River, is apparent to the northeast. The darker, mottled areas are forests, and the lighter areas are cultivated fields and pastures. The dual runways of Thompson Field are barely visible east of the city.
