Title: View of western portion of the Republic of Panama on Isthmus of Panama
Description:
A vertical view of the western portion of the Republic of Panama on the 
Isthmus of Panama as photographed from Earth orbit by one of the six lenses 
of the Itek-furnished S190-A Multispectral Photographic Facility Experiment 
aboard the Skylab space station. This picture was taken with 2443 infrared 
color film. The large, clear body of water on the north side of the isthmus 
is Golfo de los Mosquitos, an extension of the Caribbean Sea. The large, 
partly cloud-covered body of water on the south side of the isthmus is
Golfo  de Chiriqui, and extension of the Pacific Ocean.
