 (JPG) Mt. Ararat (211,618 bytes) ( 1,160 x 704 )
Mount Ararat is located in extreme northeast Turkey, close to the border of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Iran. Ararat consists of two volcanic peaks: Big Ararat (5137 m) and Little Ararat (3,914m). The top of Big Ararat is covered with snow all year long. The Old Testament story of Noah says that Noah‘«÷s ark came to rest on Ararat following the Great Flood. This image is a 3-D perspective view looking from the southwest, created by draping a simulated natural color image over an ASTER-derived digital topography model. The image was acquired on 25 June 2002, and is located at 39.75 degrees North latitude, 44.4 degrees East longitude.
