Description ISS007-E-06305 (6 June 2003) --- This image featuring two capital cities on opposite banks of the Congo River was taken by an Expedition 7 crewmember onboard the International Space Station (ISS). The smaller city is Brazzaville on the north side of the river, and Kinshasa on the south side. The cities lie at the downstream end of an almost circular widening in the river known as Stanley Pool. The international boundary follows the south shore of the pool (~30 kilometers in diameter). The Congo River exits the pool through a markedly narrowed channel at a series of whitewater rapids that can be seen in this view from space.
