Caption: Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf, seen from space. View looking roughly north-east across central Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf toward Iran. The capital city of Saudi Arabia, Al-Riyad, is seen just to the left of bottom centre. At the far left end of the Persian Gulf is Kuwait, part of its land still stained black after the Gulf War. At far right is the large peninsula of Qatar, to the left of this is the smaller island of Bahrain. The large red band of soil in the foreground is the Ad-Dahna sand field. This image was taken by the crew of Shuttle Columbia during Mission STS-52 of 22 October to 1 November 1992.
