Title: View of northeast Oklahoma and metropolitan Tulsa area
Description:
A vertical view of northeast Oklahoma and the metropolitan Tulsa area is
seen  in this Skylab 3 Earth Resources Experiments Package S190-B
(five-inch earth  terrain camera) photograph taken from the Skylab space
station in Earth  orbit. The Arkansas River meanders across the southern
(lower portion) of the  photograph passing through Tulsa as it flows
southeastward. Oologah  Reservoir, the long body of water, is located
northeast of Tulsa. Lake Hudson  is the body of water in the right corner
of the picture. Keystone Reservoir  is to the west and upstream from Tulsa.
Westward from Tulsa U.S. 64 makes a  45 degree bend as it turns northwest
to cross the Keystone Reservoir. The  thin white line over the Oologah
Reservoir is a highway bridge. Bartlesville  is on U.S. 75 near the north
(top) corner of the picture. The Tulsa  International Airport is
immediately northeast of downtown Tulsa. Several  smaller airfields are
visible in the surrounding area. Toll roads and other  major highways are
clearly visible in the picture. Claremore is northeast of  Tulsa on U.S. 66
with the Will Rogers Turnpike passing nearby. Sapulpa is  southwest of
Tulsa on the Turner Turnpike which leads toward Oklahoma City.
