Caption

Shuttle photograph showing the north Persian Gulf on December 4th 1988, taken from the earth- orbiting Atlantis during mission STS-27. Kuwait can be seen above the centre of the frame. Visible to the left of the Bay of Kuwait, at the top right corner of the Gulf, is Kuwait City. Iran (bottom), Iraq (upper right) and part of the Gulf Coast of Saudi Arabia (upper left) can also be seen. The Shatt-al-Arab waterway, formed by the confluence of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, runs into the Gulf from the right. The port of Basra in Iraq lies on this waterway, just left of the right of frame. The rugged terrain running along the bottom is the Zagros Mountains.
