This incredible image comes from NASA. The left side is Israel, eastern Jerusalem, and heading south to Hevron (Hebron). Along the left coast of the sea is Ein Gedi (oasis and resort) and Masada (the last stronghold of ancient Israel that fell to the Romans because the Jews refused to kill their enslaved countrymen who were building seige ramps for the Romans).
The right side is Jordan. Click the link below for a very large close up view.
