This low oblique picture of Houston, Texas, taken from the Space Shuttle Columbia, provides an angle never seen before in Space Shuttle imagery. The Harris County Domed Stadium (Astrodome) can be easily delineated at bottom center. Hobby Airport is at right center and Lake Houston is in the upper left quadrant of the frame.
