Description ISS012-E-21343 (29 Mar. 2006) --- The shadow of the moon falls on Earth as seen from the International Space Station, 230 miles above the planet, during a total solar eclipse at about 4:50 a.m. CST Wednesday, March 29. This digital photo was taken by the Expedition 12 crew, Commander Bill McArthur and Flight Engineer Valery Tokarev, who are wrapping up a six-month mission on the complex. Visible near the shadow are portions of Cyprus in the Mediterranean Sea and the coast of Turkey.

Description ISS013-E-44847 (30 June 2006) --- Ship traffic on the Suez Canal, Egypt is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 13 crewmember on the International Space Station. This oblique photograph captures a northbound convoy of cargo ships entering the Mediterranean Sea from the Suez Canal in Egypt (leftmost canal branch at image center). Oblique images are taken at an angle other than vertical, or nadir -- looking down a line connecting the station to the point on the Earth's surface directly below it -- and this provides a sense of perspective. In this case, the station was located above the eastern coast of Cyprus and the crewmember was looking at Egypt to the southwest. Regions of reduced clarity in the image are caused by thin variable cloud cover. The Suez Canal connects Port Said on the Mediterranean Sea with the port of Suez on the Red Sea, and provides an essentially direct route for transport of goods between Europe and Asia. The Canal is 163 kilometers long and 300 meters wide at its narrowest point -- sufficiently wide for ships as large as aircraft carriers to traverse it. Transit time from end to end is 14 hours on average.

Description S106-E-5074 (10 September 2000) --- This south-looking view from the Space Shuttle Atlantis, flying above Turkey, features the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. The photo was taken with an electronic still camera (ESC) on Flight Day 3 of the scheduled 11-day STS-106 mission.

Description STS073-723-054 (20 OCTOBER - 5 NOVEMBER 1995) --- Central Turkey dominates this north-looking panorama, with the long fingered island of Cyprus lower left, surrounded by the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Turkey's capital, Ankara, lies just north of the white bed of a dry lake in the center of the view. The city is supplied with water from the neighboring blue lake. The coast of Syria and Lebanon appear bottom right. Man-made lakes on the upper Euphrates River in eastern Turkey appear extreme right.. According to scientists studying the STS-73 photo collection, the striking difference in visibility to north and south of Turkey suggests a pollution event over the Black Sea. Air pollution from East European industry flows down into the Black Sea basin, especially at the west end (haze top left) as shown in this view (compare clearer air top right).

Description STS079-782-050 The Island of Cyprus September 1996 Covering an area of 3578 sq. miles (9267 sq. km) and located in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, the island of Cyprus can be seen in this northeast-looking view. Cyprus is located 40 miles (60 km) south of Turkey and 60 miles (100 km) west of Syria. There are three main geographic regions on Cyprus. The Troodos Massif, consisting of mostly volcanic rock and some limestone, traverses the southwest portion of the island (darker feature near the center of the image). Iron and copper pyrites are found in the foothills and asbestos and chromium in the higher slopes of the Troodos. The highest elevation in the massif is 6406 feet (1953 meters). Numerous government-owned forests cover the Troodos Massif. On the north coast is the Kyrenia Range, a narrow mountain range reaching elevations of 3000 feet (1000 meters). Consisting mainly of limestone, the range is wooded. Between the two mountain ranges is the Central Plain, where seventy percent of the island?s agriculture is located. The capital city of Cyprus, Nicosia, is situated on the Central Plain. The plain consists of a limestone crust and is considered a flat tableland. Heavily forested in ancient times, today the plain is almost treeless.

Description STS104-315-013 (12-24 July 2001) --- Holding onto the end effector of the Canadarm on the Space Shuttle Atlantis, astronaut Michael L. Gernhardt, STS-104 mission specialist, participates in one of three STS-104 space walks. The extravehicular activity (EVA) was designed to help wrap up the completion of work on the second phase of the International Space Station (ISS). Gernhardt was joined on the extravehicular activity (EVA) by astronaut James F. Reilly. The jutting peninsula in the background is Cape Kormakiti on the north central coast of Cyprus and the water body to the left of the cape is Morphu Bay.
