Image Caption: STS062-098-071 Raleigh-Durham Area, North Carolina, U.S.A. March 1994
Although the general quality of this image lacks definition in terms of discriminating some individual features, the metropolitan area of Raleigh (bottom center) and Durham (top center) can be discerned by their concentrated, highly reflective downtown areas. The straight linear feature connecting Raleigh and Durham is U. S. Highway 70. The winding thin line south-southwest of Durham is Interstate Highway 40. The Raleigh-Durham International Airport can be identified as the bright, linear feature, located midway between these cities (center of picture). The light colored, muddy looking lake northeast of Durham is Falls Lake Reservoir and the darker colored reservoir south of Durham is B. Everett Jordan Lake. The mottled looking terrain throughout this image shows a mixture of agriculture (lighter tones) and forested lands (darker area).
