Geographic Region: USA-MASSACHUSETTS
Feature: CAPE COD

STS066-097-013 Cape Cod, Massachusetts, U.S.A. November 1994
A narrow peninsula of glacial origin, Cape Cod is featured in this southeast-looking, low-oblique photograph. Cape Cod extends 65 miles (105 kilometers) east and north into the Atlantic Ocean and covers 399 square miles (1033 square kilometers). The cape's terrain is generally flat, with sand dunes, low hills, and numerous lakes; its familiar hook shape results from winds and ocean currents on the sand and gravel. Tourism and cranberry growing are the main industries. Discernible are a small portion of Nantucket Island (upper right), Buzzards Bay (center right), and Plymouth Bay (midway between center and bottom center).
