Image Caption: STS064-213-074 Metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A. September 1994
Clouds and shadows obscure some of the landscape in this photograph; however, most of urban Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, and Mesa are visible although their infrastructures are not discernible at this scale. The dual runways of the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and South Mountain to its south are apparent near the center of the photograph. Dark, rectangular field patterns mark an extensive agricultural area southwest and southeast of metropolitan Phoenix. (STS-064-213-073, a companion to this photograph, shows more of the area west of Phoenix.)
