Jerusalem (223 KB) ( 700 x 800 )
This ASTER sub-image was acquired on April 3, 2000 and covers an area of 10.5 x 12 km centered on Jerusalem. The data were processed to create a simulated natural color image, with green vegetation and orange tile roofs. The old city is the lighter blue area in the right center of the image, surrounded by a 400-year-old wall built by the Ottoman Turks. Easily visible are the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aksa Mosque on the eastern side of the old city. Jerusalem is the source of three major religions - Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - and is considered holy by all three. The image is located at 31.7 degrees north latitude and 35.2 degrees east longitude.
