Sun glint causes the Mississippi River to appear as a bright silver lightning bolt, zig-zagging down the right side of this image of the southern USA. The river flows southward for 2,350 mi (3,780 km), before finally emptying into the Gulf of Mexico near New Orleans, Louisiana.

On the left side of the image, many reservoirs can be seen in the state of Texas, near the city of Dallas. Both the city, which appears as a lighter tan area, and the Lewisville Lake are situated along the Trinity River.
