Summary

The original finding aid described this as:

Description: Earth observation views taken from shuttle orbiter Discovery during STS-91 mission. Waves generated by the volcanic peaks are seen as the wind carrying the smoke moves by the peaks. Along the coast of the Bay of Campeche, the fires burn around the peak of the Cerro San Martin (5, 577 feet), which is west and higher than the peak with the waves around it. Lago Catemaco is on the west, center edge of the photo. Fires across Mexico and Central America created heavy smoke plumes. Image was selected by the crew for use in their postflight presentation.
