  STS085-721-044 Sydney Area, Nova Scotia, Canada August 1997
The northeast tip of Cape Breton Island shows a densely forested landscape. The lakes (small, dark features) in the scene were created by glaciers during the last Ice Age. In this southeast looking view of Sydney and its environs, the lighter-colored terrain shows the distribution of the populated urban areas along the coast. Sydney, third largest city in Nova Scotia, is located along the eastern branch of the Y-shaped bay. Other towns include New Waterford, Glace Bay and Sydney Mines. Several of the interconnecting highways (thin, light-colored lines) can be traced through the wooded countryside.
