Image Caption:
Also could use STS58-92-068, a closer view of the Nile and
Sinai; the right-hand fork of the Red Sea Rift is the Gulf
of Aqaba and the Dead Sea Rift. Leads into STS58-96-041, the
heart of the Holy Land. Orient with the Mediteranean Sea to
the left, then north is to the top. Salt-evaporation ponds
are colorful at the southern end of the Dead Sea. Jeruselem
is west of the Dead Sea, just to the right of the cloud;
Amman, Jordan is the gray patch in the upper right corner.
