Nile River Delta, Mediterranean Sea (NASA, International Space Station, 08/18/11)
Editor's note: I've added this to our "NASA Views Earth at Night" Flickr photoset:
The Nile River Delta and part of the Mediterranean Sea can be seen in this night time photo captured by one of the Expedition 28 crew members aboard the International Space Station, flying at an altitude of approximately 220 miles. A 38-mm focal length was used to record the image.
