Intense navigation lights add color to this high resolution photo taken in the Panama Canal last week. The photo was taken from the guided-missile frigate USS Kauffman as it traversed the canal which connects the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The Kauffman is deployed in Operation Martillo, a joint maneuver with the U.S. Coast Guard and several other countries. This official U.S. Navy photo was taken by mass communications specialist 3rd class Shane A. Jackson.
