  STS51F-035-0012 Moses Lake Area, Washington, U.S.A. August 1985
Moses Lake and Potholes Reservoir are featured in this low-oblique, north-looking photograph. Snakelike Moses Lake [16 miles (25 kilometers) long] extends northward from the small farming community of Moses Lake, visible near the center of the photograph. Potholes Reservoir (south of Moses Lake) has a low water level in this summer view; Soap Lake and larger Lake Lenore are apparent near the top center. Stretching to the west, east, and south of Moses Lake are numerous pivot-irrigation fields. Interstate Highway 90, which traverses west-east just south of the community of Moses Lake, is barely discernible.
