The darker-colored area extending diagonally to the right down the center of this Space Shuttle image is Harrat ar Rahah, the northernmost of a series of Quaternary volcanic fields paralleling the Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia. The geometrical outlines of the historical town of Tabuk (top-center), located on the road leading from Hijr to Damascus, can be seen to the north.
