Image Caption: STS073-742-047 Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.A. October 1995
Kansas City, the second largest city in the state, is featured in this west-looking, low-oblique, color infrared photograph. The Missouri and Kansas Rivers travel eastward from the northwest and west, respectively. Kansas City is a major commercial, industrial, and transportation center in a rich agriculture and livestock producing area. The vivid reds identify many trees throughout the city. Agricultural field patterns are again discernible in the river floodplain following the devastating floods of 1993.
