Cairo and Alexandria, Egypt at Night (NASA, International Space Station Science, 10/28/10)

Editor's Note: This is part of a small photoset, "NASA Views Earth at Night." I'll try to keep adding as time permits. www.flickr.com/photos/28634332@N05/sets/72157625188331491/

 

From 220 miles above Earth, one of the Expedition 25 crew members on the International Space Station took this night time photo featuring the bright lights of Cairo and Alexandria, Egypt on the Mediterranean coast. The Nile River and its delta stand out clearly as well. On the horizon, the airglow of the atmosphere is seen across the Mediterranean. The Sinai Peninsula, at right, is outlined with lights highlighting the Gulf of Suez and Gulf of Aqaba.
