On the left is Thunder Bay, Ontario; Michigan’s Keweenaw
Peninsula is on the right. Isle Royale is part of Michigan.
An astronaut tracked the reflection of the sun as it followed the Shuttle across the Great Lakes, resulting in several spectacular images. Isle Royale, the Straits of Mackinac, the Keweenaw Peninsula, and South Lake Huron are already part of Great Lakes, Grand Lands and we look forward to presenting North Huron and the tip of the Bruce Peninsula in future blog posts.
This photo was taken by an astronaut aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour during STS-59 in 1994.
