November 9, 2009 - Snowy and hazy central Russia. The Ob River dominates much of the image, it runs nearly diagonally across the scene. The Ob runs north and west where it is joined by the Irtysh River. The water from these rivers continues north where it empties into the Gulf of Ob, which is a long bay in the Kara Sea, which itself adjoins to the Arctic Ocean. Near the bottom center right of the image, the Ob bends and makes a W shape, part of the W is just cut off by the bottom of the image. Extending southwards from this section of the Ob are long dark marks in the landscape. These lines, which run southward to the Kazakhstan border are wetland areas along tributaries of the Ob. additional wetlands are visible in the bowls of the Ob's W.
