This rather interesting photograph was taken by the crew of the Space Shuttle in February of 2002. It's situated just north of the Sinai Peninsula, and appears to partially cover Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Iraq. Here's a map showing its approximate location:

Jerusalem is near its peak if we think of the pyramid being upside down on the map. Let's rotate the satellite image 90 degrees to the left, and take a look at something even more interesting:

There's a face in this cloud!

Whose face it is, I don't know, so if you have any ideas, please let me know. Its location is obviously important because the pyramids are nearby, and the Sinai peninsula has a triangular shape as well. The face is somewhat lion-like, which ties in with the Sphinx, and of course all pyramids have 4 faces, but beyond that, it's a mystery that our heavenly Father has given us.
