Havana, Cuba, seen from the International Space Station (ISS). North is at top. Havana was founded in 1519 by the Spanish. The old city is a small area on the left side of the mouth of the bay. It has several piers, seen jutting out into the bay. Ships are seen in the 4-kilometre-wide bay, which has several harbours. The image also shows most of the rest of the city, with its buildings, grid- like roads and parks (green). Over 2 million people live in Havana, the capital city of the Caribbean island of Cuba. The ISS orbits the Earth at an altitude of around 380 kilometres. Photographed on 22 October 2002.
