Egypt - May 6th, 2012

The city of Cairo can be observed at the base of the Nile Delta, appearing as a grey area. As the Nile River flows northward from the bottom of this is, it passes by the heart-shaped Faiyum Oasis and Lake Moeris (visible along the  northern border of the oasis), before opening into a large fan-shaped delta and spilling into the Mediterranean Sea. Visible to the east of the delta is the Suez Canal, connecting the Mediterranean to the Red Sea (lower right quadrant). The tan circular areas dotted across the green delta region are cities and towns.
