The triangular Sinai Peninsula of Egypt appears below the Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) or Canadarm2 in the foreground (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 photo, from a 70mm handheld camera, was made while the Space Shuttle Endeavouor was docked with the International Space Station (ISS).
