Red Sea Satellite

 
Satellite Image of the Red Sea 
In this image the Red Sea is the black area in the lower part of the photograph. A small portion of the Mediterranean is at the very top, Egypt on the left, Saudia Arabia on the right, and the Sinai Peninsula at the northern end of the Red Sea.
     
The Red Sea is a newly opened ocean basin. Egypt and Saudia Arabia will move farther apart as the ocean Basin continues to open. This image shows what the newly opening Proto-Atlantic ocean might have looked like just before the initiation of oceanic lithosphere generation. The Red Sea is an axial rift.
