Caption: The English Channel & the Strait of Dover, the sea area dividing England (left) and France, photographed from the orbiting space shuttle Challenger (Mission 41-G, 5-13 October, 1984). The view of the English coastline extends from Hampshire (extreme bottom left) to Lincolnshire in the north; the Wash is visible through the fine cloud cover. The Thames estuary is seen at centre left, with Greater London appearing as a lighter patch to its left. Across the Channel, the coastline of France is clearly visible from the Belgian border (upper centre) to Dieppe in the south; the sediment outflow from the Somme estuary is seen at the bottom of the picture.
