Caption: Iran and the Persian Gulf seen from orbit. Iran forms the majority of the land in the foreground. The Persian Gulf is at upper right, and it becomes the Gulf of Oman (upper left) after passing through the Straits of Hormuz (kink in the channel at upper right). On the far side of the Gulf are the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to the right and Oman to the left. At centre right are the dark Zagros Mountains. The pale green lakes at bottom left are normally-dry lake beds in south-western Afghanistan. Photographed from the space shuttle Columbia during mission STS-040 in June 1991.
