One of the world’s largest artificial lakes, Lake Nasser is named after the Egyptian President Gamal Abdul Nasser, who is largely responsible for the lake’s creation. President Nasser decided to build the Aswan High Dam across the Nile, forming a lake approximately 550 kilometers 340 miles long. In this astronaut photograph taken from the International Space Station, the water of Lake Nasser stands out from its surroundings due to sunglint.
