Image Caption: Eastern Egypt, the Red Sea and Saudi Arabia can all be seen in this single view of the Near East (26.5N, 36.5E). Not since The Gemini XI photo taken in 1966, have NASA astronauts been able to capture such a scope of the Earth's surface as this mission provided from its 330 nautical mile orbit. Easily seen from this vantage point is eastern Egypt, the Nile River, Lake Nassar, the Red Sea and almost half of Saudi Arabia.
