Image Caption: STS066-126-095 Mobile Bay, Alabama, U.S.A. November 1994
Featured in this photograph are the Gulf of Mexico; the port of Mobile at the northwest corner of sediment-laden Mobile Bay; and highly reflective, elongated, sandy beaches of the barrier islands that help to create the east-west-oriented Intracoastal Waterway. The Mobile River, the southern extension of the Tombigbee Waterway System that connects Mobile with Knoxville, Tennessee, has created a sizable delta at the northern end of Mobile Bay. Visible are dark Big Creek Lake west of Mobile; segments of Interstate Highway 10 across the southern end of the delta at the north end of Mobile Bay; and highly reflective, industrialized Moss Point, Mississippi (lower left edge). Apparent are dark vegetated and wooded bottomlands and lighter cultivated fields and pasturelands.
