Ships off coast of United Arab Emirates - November 29th, 2008

In this fine radar image we can see the east coast of the United Arab Emirates, near the town of Khawr Fakkan.

Khawr Fakkan (or Khor Fakkan) is a town in the emirate of Sharjah, located along the Gulf of Oman. It is a natural deep water port that is now a major container terminal.

The importance of this port is obvious from the great deal of ships (which appear as small white dots), probably carrying petroleum, visible off the coast in the image.
