Image Caption: STS066-153-175 Green Bay, Door Peninsula; Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin, U.S.A. November 1994
Featured in this south-southeast-looking, low-oblique photograph are Lake Winnebago, Green Bay, and Door Peninsula in east-central Wisconsin. Green Bay, an arm of Lake Michigan (bottom left), is 100 miles (160 kilometers) long and 10 to 20 miles (16 to 32 kilometers) wide. At its southern end is the city of Green Bay at the mouth of the Fox River, whose sediment plume appears in the southern end of the bay. Southwest of Green Bay lies Lake Winnebago (seen in sunglint), a recreation area 30 miles (48 kilometers) long and 10 miles (16 kilometers) at its widest point. West of Lake Winnebago and Oshkosh is Lake Poygan. Viewing north from Lake Winnebago are Appleton (barely discernible), Shawano Lake, Menominee Indian Reservation, and the Nicolet National Forest. The central plains of Wisconsin are visible along the upper right and right center of the photograph.
