Image Caption: STS068-237-052 Sandusky Bay; Sandusky/Norwalk, Ohio October 1994
This west-looking view shows Sandusky Bay and the agricultural land use patterns of northwest Ohio. Lake Erie, with its numerous shoreline sediment patterns, covers most of the right quarter of the image. The highly reflected white areas that are visible scattered throughout the land scene are limestone quarries, as limestone is most prevalent in northwest Ohio. The small industrial city of Sandusky, located near the outlet of Sandusky Bay (to the right of the center of the image), is discernible. To the south-southeast of Sandusky, the small city of Norwalk is visible. Rubber products are the major industry of the city of Norwalk. Kelleys Island can be seen in lake Erie at the right center of the image.
