Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at an extinct volcano in the Port Of Aden, Yemen. The photo was taken by an astronaut onboard the International Space Station.
Aden is located on the south end of the Red Sea and has a population of about 800,000 people. This harbor, known as Front Bay, is situated in the cater of the dormant volcano. The region is classified as a hot desert climate, with daily highs over 100 degrees Fahrenheit most months of the year.
