This image covers an area roughly 100x150 km; due to shuttle orientation, north is located at approximately eleven oclock in this image. Shown are the Gaza Strip (roughly the center third of the coastal strip) and the Mediterranean Sea.

The straight-line Egypt-Israel border is apparent in the lower center because of a difference in vegetation patterns, the Egyptian side (south) being less vegetated perhaps due to heavy use of the land for grazing.
