Image Caption: Sunglint in the Strait of Hormuz
There are two tools we use in the Space Shuttle photography to give us information about the worlds water features. One is sunglint ( the reflection of the sun off the Earth's surface) and the other is color. Note that the sunglint is over the United Arab Emirates Peninsula and that to the left of the Peninsula no ocean features are defined.
