Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features an overhead look at Musa Bay, Iran as seen from space.

This image was captured by the Advanced Land Imager on board NASA’s EO-1 satellite and shows how various rivers throughout southern Iran converge here before emptying into the Persian Gulf. As a result, the area was a very early shipping center and remains one of Iran’s largest port cities.
