Turkey - April 28th, 2012

This image stretches from Turkey (above), across the Mediterranean Sea to Egypt (lower right) and Libya (lower left). The large islands in the Mediterranean are Cyprus (right) and Crete (left). North of Crete are many smaller Aegean Islands, belonging to both Turkey and Greece.

Other important bodies of water in the image include the Nile River and Nile Delta. Located just east of the delta is the Suez Canal, connecting the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea. To the north, in Turkey, are several lakes in the Turkish Lakes Region. The largest two are the bright turquoise Lake Eğirdir (left) and Lake Beyşehir (right). To their northeast is Lake Van, appearing as a bright white salt flat.
