    The original finding aid described this as: Description: Earth observation views taken from shuttle orbiter Endeavour during STS-67 mission. Cooper Creek is one of the largest drainage's in the Channel Country of the arid interior of Australia (Queensland). Rivers in this region are usually dry but during floods (a few times per century) they occupy very wide flood plains, shown here as the darker areas with hairlike rills. After the great rains which recently fell in many parts of Australia, individual rills contain water and show up in sunglint in this view. Flow is to the south (top) towards Lake Eyre. Lake Yamma Yamma is the medallion-shaped ``flood-out`` lake right center.
