  STS090-732-073 San Antonio, Texas, USA April 1998
Downtown San Antonio, or the central business district (highly reflective area), is located near the center of the picture where numerous highways seemingly converge. Parts of the inner loop (Interstate Highway 410) and the outer beltway (Texas Highway 1604) are visible, as they partially encircle the built up urban area (mainly along the north side of San Antonio). The highly reflective white patches north of Texas Highway 1604 are areas where limestone has been quarried as aggregate for highway construction. Three reservoirs, (Calaveras, Brauning, and Mitchell) are visible (dark, irregular shaped features) southeast of downtown San Antonio. The linear runways of Randolph Air Force Base ("H" shape northeast of city), Kelley Air Force Base (southwest of city), and San Antonio International Airport (north of downtown) can be identified. The river channels, (Salada, San Antonio, and Leon Rivers) can be detected as meandering, dark features that eventually merge with the Medina River south of San Antonio. Cultivated field patterns are seen west and south of the city.
