Description ISS002-E-5623 (23 April 2001) --- The Strait of Gibraltar, with part of Spain and all of Gibraltar at upper left and upper center, respectively, and portions of Morocco at bottom, was photographed with a digital still camera by the Expedition Two crew onboard the International Space Station (ISS).

Description ISS002-E-5627 (23 April 2001) --- Algecira (left), the Bay of Gibraltar (Bahia de Algecira) and "The Rock of Gibraltar" (right) are featured in this detailed vertical view on the European side of the Strait of Gibraltar. Ship traffic in the Bay and Gibraltar Dock Yard can easily be seen. This digital still camera's image is part of a series of pictures centering on the Strait of Gibraltar area which was recorded by the ISS Expedition Two crew on April 23, 2001.

Description ISS009-E-09954 (3 June 2004) --- Large internal waves in the Strait of Gibraltar are featured in this scene photographed by an Expedition 9 crewmember on the International Space Station (ISS). These subsurface internal waves occur at depths of about 100 meters, but appear in the sun glint as giant swells flowing eastward into the Mediterranean Sea. This image was merged with image ISS009-E-09952 to create a mosaic, which can be viewed on http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov.

Description ISS015-E-18808 (21 July 2007) --- Ceuta on the northern African coastline is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 15 crewmember on the International Space Station. The small Spanish enclave of Ceuta occupies a narrow isthmus of land on the African side of the Strait of Gibraltar. This view illustrates the sharp contrast in land cover between urban Ceuta (pink to white residential and industrial rooftops at center), the bay formed by seawalls to the north of the city, and the higher elevations of Monte Hacho forming the end of the isthmus. Green, vegetated slopes surround the Spanish fort atop the mountain, which commands a clear view of the Strait of Gibraltar to the northwest (not shown). Several small dots are visible near the coastline to the northwest and south of Ceuta -- these are small pleasure or fishing boats

Description ISS014-E-06812 (30 Oct. 2006) --- Gibraltar Bay, located near the southernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsula in the western Mediterranean Sea, is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 14 crewmember on the International Space Station. According to scientists, the famous Rock of Gibraltar that forms the northeastern border of the Bay is formed of Jurassic seafloor sediments that were lithified to form limestone (a rock formed predominantly of the mineral calcite) and subsequently uplifted as a result of collision of the African and Eurasian tectonic plates. The cities of La Linea and Algeciras bordering the Bay -- together with petroleum-processing facilities along the northern Bay shoreline -- are part of Spain, whereas the city of Gibraltar itself (to the west of and including the Rock) is under the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom. The protected waters of the Bay and its proximity to Africa and the Strait of Gibraltar as the gateway between the Atlantic and Mediterranean contribute to the region's past and current strategic and economic importance. Numerous ships and several ship wakes are visible within the Bay; the majority of these are freighters and cargo tankers accessing the petroleum facilities. Ships nearer to the Rock are more likely cruise ships, as Gibraltar is a popular destination for tourists. Partial sunglint within the Bay highlights surface water roughened by winds funneled into the Bay by the surrounding highlands -- one such area is visible directly to the west of La Linea.

Description S114-E-6310 (3 August 2005) --- Parts of Spain and North Africa form the backdrop for this view featuring a portion of thermal protection tiles on the Space Shuttle Discovery?s underside and the Canadian-built remote manipulator system (RMS) robotic arm while docked to the International Space Station during the STS-114 mission. The image was photographed by astronaut Stephen K. Robinson (out of frame), mission specialist, during today?s extravehicular activities (EVA). The Shuttle was flying over Barcelona at the moment this image was taken. The landmass on the left is North Africa, and the view is in the direction of the Strait of Gibraltar.

Description STS090-E-5133 (24 April 1998) --- This 400mm view of Gibraltar and the southern tip of Spain was recorded with an electronic still camera (ESC) as the Space Shuttle Columbia passed over the Alboran Sea. Clearly seen are San Roque, La Linea and Algeciras. The jutting feature at center frame is Europa Point. The photo was taken at 12:08:11 GMT, April 24, 1998.

Description ISS015-E-07934 (13 May 2007) --- Mazatlan, Mexico is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 15 crewmember on the International Space Station. Mazatlan is Mexico's largest port, situated on one of the best estuaries on Mexico's Pacific coast, illustrated well in this image. Docks and naval yards line the north side of the estuary. The city itself appears as a series of light-toned city blocks covering the center of the image. Mazatlan (population of 352,000 in 2005) is growing northward from the downtown peninsula, with tourist beaches backed by hotels, and a marina and golf courses just beyond. No city growth yet appears on the south side the estuary where farm lands can be seen. The famous Faro Lighthouse occupies the top of a steep island--now connected by a bridge to the mainland--at the mouth of the estuary (top center). The Faro Lighthouse is the second tallest in the world behind Gibraltar's. The wide, straight, almost vertical line of the railroad appears to bisect the picture. This image shows sea features well, primarily ocean swells coming in from the southwest, which appear as a series of parallel lines covering the entire sea surface in this view. An oil slick offshore of the tourist beaches appears as a dark line along the left side of the image.
