  NM21-763-037 Fox River and Green Bay, Wisconsin, U.S.A. Winter 1995-1996
Featured in this east-southeast-looking, low-oblique photograph is the city of Green Bay at the mouth of the Fox River, which empties into the southern end of Green Bay, an arm of Lake Michigan. Green Bay, the oldest permanent settlement in Wisconsin and one of the best harbors on the Great Lakes, is a wholesale, industrial, and railroad center for northeast Wisconsin. Apparent in the southern end of Green Bay is sediment from the Fox River, which drains Lake Winnebago to the south (not visible). Through the efforts of many communities, the Fox River, which suffered in the past from industrial pollution, has made great strides toward becoming pollution free. The runways of Austin Straubel Airport are visible (near the center of the photograph).
