Image Caption: STS065-096-011 Maui, Hawaii, U.S.A. July 1994
Apparent in this low-oblique photograph of Maui are several features--a large buildup of probable rain clouds over the northeast slope of Puukukui Volcano, which makes up the small west-northwest peninsula of the island; the disturbed water pattern on the southwest side of the peninsula created by velocity variations of near-surface air movement, producing an island wake; and multicolored, intensively cultivated field patterns in the intermontane valley. Visible are Red Hill and Haleakala Crater near the top of the photograph and the eastern ends of Kahoolawe (right side) and Lanai (lower right edge).
