Ural Delta "Tree leaf" | International Space Station


ESA Astronaut Thomas Pesquet of France: "The Ural Delta in the Caspian Sea looks like a tree leaf."

"L’embouchure du fleuve Oural, qui se d√©verse dans la mer Caspienne, ressemble √©trangement aux nervures d’une feuille d’arbre , Kazakhstan"

The Caspian Sea is the largest enclosed inland body of water on Earth by area, variously classed as the world's largest lake or a full-fledged sea. It is in an endorheic basin (a basin without outflows) located between Europe and Asia. It is bounded by Kazakhstan to the northeast, Russia to the northwest, Azerbaijan to the west, Iran to the south, and Turkmenistan to the southeast.
