  STS085-708-028 Store Strait, Denmark August 1997
The Store Strait separates two of Denmark's largest islands: Fyn to the west and Zealand to the east. The light colored, linear feature that seemingly connects these two islands appears to be a highway or railroad bridge and tunnel combination. Most of the total land area of Denmark is characterized as low and flat to gently rolling plains and over sixty percent of it is used for agriculture (lighter colored terrain). The randomly spaced darker patterns are forested areas and several lakes are also discernible as darker colored features.
