Near vertical view of Lubbock area in west Texas as seen from Apollo 9
Near vertical view of the Lubbock area in west Texas as photographed from the Apollo 9 spacecraft during its earth-orbital mission. Conspicuous patterns of farmland surround the city and extend eastward (up) to the Caprock Escarpment. The Double Mountain fork of the Brazos River drains east (toward upper center); Leeland is at lower center; Brownfield at lower right. The sharp edge of a cloud disk cuts across the upper right corner.
