Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran - December 26th, 2010

This image stretches of Pakistan (right), across Afghanistan (above) to part of Iran (left). Part of the Indus River and Valley, in Pakistan, can be observed as a thick green line in the lower right quadrant.

The tan area surrounded by mountains in the image center is the desert of southern Afghanistan, which reaches over the Pakistan border. The two rows of hills at the bottom of this desert are located in the Chagai District of Pakistan.
