Located on and near the border of Egypt and northern Sudan, Lake Nasser (center) and the Toshka Lakes (center left) look emerald green and black in this true-color image. These lakes are an oasis of water in between the Nubian and Libyan Deserts. The Nile River flows north from Lake Nasser. The Red Sea is also visible in the upper right corner.
