Astronaut Sergey Ryazansky captured from ISS Lake Managua, Nicaragua.
Lake Managua is a lake in Nicaragua and Managua the capital city lies on the south side of the lake. It is the largest lake in Central America. Unfortunately the Lake Managua has been described as “the most contaminated lake in Central America.” The lake has been severely polluted, mostly by decades of sewage being dumped into the lake. The city sewers have drained into the lake since 1927. The lake today has no stable outlet, with only occasional floods to Lake Nicaragua through the Tipitapa River.
The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
