The Middle East

November 26, 2007
This MODIS Terra image of the Middle East was acquired on June 5, 2006. The green Nile Delta, in Egypt (to the west) contrasts with the surrounding desert areas. To the east of the Nile, two forks of the Red Sea surround the Sinai Peninsula. The left branch is the Gulf of Suez - the Suez Canal is visible on this image, running north from the Gulf.
