Image Caption: STS068-161-097 Lake Carnegie, Western Australia, Australia October 1994
The light colored, brownish looking area shows the general outline of Lake Carnegie, a dry lake located in the central part of Western Australia. This arid region is located southwest of the Gibson Desert and northwest of the Great Victoria Desert. The larger, dark brown features (right middle) are slightly elevated, more vegetated islands on the flat surface of the dry lakebed (or playa). A low range of hills, (darker, linear feature in the lower left quadrant), called the Von Treuer Tablelands, can be traced diagonally across part of the image. The eastern end of the Princess Range of mountains (darker, linear feature) is visible in the upper right quadrant of the image.
