Caption

River Nile, Luxor, Egypt, satellite image. North is at top. Water is black, vegetation is green and arid land is brown. The River Nile flows south to north through the mountains and deserts of Egypt. Its waters sustain agricultural fields (green) in this area of low rainfall. The image is centred on the city of Luxor, famous for its ruins dating to the time of Ancient Egypt. This 115-kilometre-wide image was taken on 22 January 1986, in visible and infrared wavelengths, with the Thematic Mapper (TM) sensor on a NASA Landsat satellite.
