Caspian Sea, Elburz Mountains, Iran (NASA, May 1996).

The Caspian Sea, the world’s largest inland body of water, is discernible in this panoramic, west-looking photograph. A salt lake, the Caspian Sea sits in a huge depression that has many entering rivers and streams, including the Volga, but no outlet. The sea, situated 92 feet below sea level, has in recent years experienced drops in water level. Along the southern shore are the rugged, snow-capped Elburz Mountains, with the lowland that separates them from the sea (just left of center) no wider than 25 miles at any one point. The Elburz Mountains, with many peaks exceeding 10 000 feet, have as their highest peak, Mount Damavand, an extinct volcano reaching 18 934 feet. Discernible is Dasht-e-Kavir (from near left center to near bottom center), a great salt desert and huge basin of interior drainage named after kavirs (salt marshes) that cover large areas within the basin. Apparent are clouds above the Kopet Mountains (bottom right center) and the Bay of Krasnovodsk in Turkmenistan (right center).

This beautiful image of the Planet, with glowing green lights of the aurora australis, was acquired on June 19, 2017, by the International Space Station crew, while passing over the Great Australian Bight and the cloud-covered Indian Ocean. The blue glow of dawn appears at the far left, the ISS solar arrays jut into the foreground, and stars fill the space above the edge of the atmosphere (NASA).
