Sharm El Sheikh from space
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency (ESA) provides a glimpse of the famous coastal resort town of Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt.
Located on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in between the desert and the Red Sea, this region was a vacation destination for ancient Romans and Greeks all the way back to the 4th century B.C.
Divers are attracted to Sharm El Sheikh to explore the hundreds of coral reefs and diverse marine life found in the Red Sea.
This video is part of the ESA’s Earth from Space series.
