Caption: River Nile, Luxor, Egypt, as seen from the International Space Station (ISS). North is towards bottom left. Agricultural fields (green) are sustained by the waters of the Nile (dark blue) as it flows from right to left through the desert (brown). This stretch of the river is several kilometres long, and flows past the city of Luxor (grey, centre left) and its Ancient Egyptian ruins, one of the major tourist attractions in Egypt. Luxor International Airport (upper left, on the edge of the desert), and the Valley of the Kings (bottom centre) are also seen. The ISS orbits around 380 kilometres above the Earth. Photographed in 2007, during Expedition 15 to the ISS.
