Image Caption: The triangular Sinai Penisula of Egypt appears behind the Canada Arm in the
foreground (lower right), with the Gulf of Suez to its west (far right) and the
Gulf of Aqaba (center bottom). These gulfs join to become the Red Sea which
stretches away south to the horizon down the left side of this south-looking
view. Saudi Arabia lies to the left and Egypt and Sudan to the right.

The Red Sea is widening as Saudi Arabia pulls northeast (left). The margins
of the sea are appropriately parallel. The Red Sea is one of the youngest seas
on the planet.
