Image Caption: STS074-735-007 Kopet Mountains, Turkmenistan November 1995
Most of arid, western Turkmenistan is visible in this southwest-looking panoramic view that includes the southern end of the Caspian Sea (large light blue feature near horizon). A sizeable dust storm (lighter-colored, uniform-looking) is in progress, blowing dust towards the southwest in the bottom third of the image. The darker features are mountain ranges. The linear, northwest-southeast aligned Kopet Mountains extend diagonally across the scene along a fault zone that is located along the northeast-facing base of the mountains. Several snow-capped peaks and ridgelines of the mountains in northern Iran, including the Elburz Mountains (along the southern edge of the Caspian Sea) are discernible towards the left horizon.
