NASA Photo ID: STS052-95-037       File Name: 10065344.jpg
  Film Type: 70mm                    Date Taken: 11/01/92
  Title: Island of Hawaii
  Description:
  Three main volcanoes make up the island of Hawaii (19.5N, 155.5W): the
  older  volcanoes Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and the recent Kilauea seen venting
  steam.   This color infrared image is one of a pair (see STS052-77-002) to
  compare the  differences between color film and color infrared film.  Color
  film presents  an image as it appears to the human eye whereas color
  infrared imagery  reduces atmospheric haze and portrays vegetation as
  shades of red.
