Tara and Irtysh Rivers, Russia56.6N 74.6E
The Tara River, running horizontally across the top portion of the image, is located in the Novosibirsk and Omsk Oblasts in Russia.
The Tara is a right tributary of the Irtysh River of the Ob Basin. The length of the river is 806 km and its basin has an area of 18,300 km².
The Tara River generally freezes up in late October or early November and stays under the ice until late April or early May. Here, it is visible post-thaw.
Flowing vertically along the left side of the image, best observed in the close-up, is the Irtysh River. It is the chief tributary of the Ob River, although it is actually longer than the Ob to their confluence.
The green Lake Chany and its surrounding wetlands can also be seen at the bottom right.
