Image Caption: STS066-124-067 Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A. November 1994
Detroit, the "automobile capital of the world," lies west of Lake Saint Clair and the Detroit River in this north-looking, low-oblique photograph. The largest city in Michigan, Detroit is a port of entry; a major Great Lakes shipping and rail center; and a major industrial, commercial, financial, and cultural center for the region. Detroit leads the nation in the production of gray iron foundry products, metal stampings, and machine tools. Extensive salt mines underlie the southwestern section of the city. Visible are the runways of Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (left of center) west of the Detroit River; numerous small lakes northwest of the city; Lake Saint Clair (upper right); and Lake Erie (bottom right). Windsor, Ontario, Canada, is discernible (near center) east of the Detroit River.
