Image Caption: The City of Jerusalem is nearly due west of the northern tip of the Dead Sea approximately 20 miles. It is not very visible in photography. This is due to most of the buildings being made out of native materials. There is also not much vegetation to provide contrast with the city. However, the contrast in this shot is superior to previous astrounaut photographs of Jerusalem, making it an outstanding addition to the collection of "Cities from Space."
