I just wanted to share a picture of the Great Lakes, taken from space by astronaut Karen Nyberg on the International Space Station. She was facing west when she took the shot so Lake Michigan is farthest away. On the lower left are Lakes Erie and Ontario and front and center are Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. Lake Superior was being camera-shy that day and was out of the frame. These five lakes constitute 21 percent of the world’s freshwater supply. Cumulus clouds dot the landscape.
