Overhead images, shared by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre, of Moon Lake in Al Qudra desert show the distinctive shape of a crescent on the occasion of Eid Al Fitr.

The MBR Space Centre posted the photos on social media along with the caption: "With the world celebrating Eid Al Fitr, the distinctive crescent shape of the Moon Lake in Al Qudra desert is visible in this image captured by KhalifaSat, resonating with the spirit of the occasion."

The image was captured by KhalifaSat, one of the world’s most technologically advanced remote sensing observation satellites and the first 100 per cent designed and manufactured in the United Arab Emirates. It was launched into low Earth orbit (Approximately 613 km in altitude) in October 2018, beginning a 5-year mission to capture and transmit high-quality detailed images of Earth to the MBRSC in Dubai.
