USA and Canada - September 26th, 2010

Several lakes can be observed, scattered across this image of northern USA and the Canadian province of Manitoba. The large lakes in the upper part are Lake Winnipeg (tan and green in color), Lake Winnipegosis (green, just below the northern part of the former), and Lake Manitoba (bright green, near the southern part of Lake Winnipeg).

To the south, Lake Sakakawea appears as a navy blue lake with a curved shape, near the image center. It is a reservoir in the Missouri River basin in the US state of North Dakota. To its west, also navy blue in color, is the Fort Peck Reservoir in the state of Montana. Near the bottom of the image is Lake Oahe, on the Missouri River in South Dakota.
