NM23-721-514 Lake Pellegrini, Rio Negro, Argentina Winter/Spring 1997
This near-vertical looking view shows the confluence of the Neuquen (left center) and the Limay (bottom left) Rivers that forms the Rio Negro (just to the right of the center of the image). The confluence of the two rivers occurs near the small city of Cipolletti. Numerous small towns dot the floodplain of the river. Lake Pellegrini is visible to the east of the Neuquen River. The lake has no inlet but does have an outlet to the Neuquen River. The semi-arid, windswept brown-colored plateau of Patagonia is visible throughout the scene outside of the river floodplains and lakes. A portion of the space station MIR is visible along the right edge of the image.
