Image Caption: STS068-172-172 Dauphin Lake; Lake Manitoba, Canada October 1994
One of the largest lakes in North America, Lake Manitoba can be seen in this south-looking low-oblique view. Covering nearly 1817 square miles (4706 sq. km.) and extending in length over 140 miles (225 km), Lake Manitoba is a remnant of the former Lake Agassiz, a glacial lake formed over 10,000 years ago when Ice Age glaciers were retreating northward. Former Lake Agassiz covered portions of present day northwest Minnesota, northeast North Dakota, southern Manitoba, and southwest Ontario. To the left of Lake Manitoba, some portions of Lake Winnipeg are visible through the clouds. To the right of Lake Manitoba is Lake Dauphin, another remnant of former Lake Agassiz, which covers an area of 200 square miles (518 sq. km.)
