Image Caption:
Belfast, Northern Ireland T51

Belfast (1) is visible in this near-vertical view. The North
Channel can be seen at the right half of the view, with a small
part of Scotland visible at upper right. Lake Strangford (2) is
also visible. Belfast has been the scene of numerous deaths in
recent decades in strife between Catholic and Protestant groups.
The city is the industrial center for all of Ireland. (STS51B-
52-016)
