Lying near the center of this image is Lake St. Clair, between Lake Huron to the north and Lake Erie to the south. It is connected to the former by the St. Clair River, and to the latter by the Detriot River.

West of the lake is the state of Michigan, USA, while to the east lies the Canadian province of Ontario. The city of Detroit, USA, and its extensive suburbs can be seen on the western shores of the Detroit River, while the city of Windsor lies on the eastern shores in Canada.

The lake is part of the Great Lakes system, although it is rarely counted as one of the Great Lakes. Here, Lakes St. Clair and Erie appear bluish-green and clouded with light tan sediments. Lake Huron, on the other hand, appears dark blue except for a small area framing its southern shores.
