This oblique (north-looking) view is over Yellowstone National Park in the northwest corner of Wyoming. The STS-90 frame, from the Space Shuttle Columbia, shows a part of Earth seldom seen from space because of the lower degree of inclination of most of the shuttle flights. Yellowstone Lake is in the center of the frame.
