Egypt - May 23rd, 2011

A thin veil of dust blows over the Red Sea between Egypt and Saudi Arabia (upper right corner). At its widest point, the sea is 355 km (220.6 mi) across.

On the left side of the image are Lake Nasser and the Nile River. The lake appears greenish-blue in color, while the river is bordered by a strip of green vegetation.
