Three of North America’s Great Lakes dominate this image: Lake Superior (upper left), Lake Michigan (center) and Lake Huron (right). Part of Lake Eerie can also be seen (lower right). The lakes appear dark blue with an odd golden sheen caused by some sun glint.

Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are connected by the Straits of Mackinac. Moving further east, Lake Huron’s large Georgian Bay is visible in the upper right corner. The bay is located in Ontario, Canada, and its main body lies east of the Bruce Peninsula and Manitoulin Island.
