Image Caption: Lake Ontario, the smallest of the Great Lakes, as it appeared to the
STS-96 crew in low light and partial sunglint. Lake Ontario
discharges into the Saint Lawrence river which flows northeast towards
the Atlantic. Lake Champlain also shows partial sunglint
east-northeast of Lake Ontario. The thin white lines in the
photograph are contrails from some of the heavy air traffic in this
eastern corridor.
