The four Cluster spacecraft launched in connected pairs, Tango with Rumba and Samba with Salsa. One in each pair carried a small camera to document the separation of the pairs. This image, taken from Rumba, shows Tango floating free over the Mediterranean and the Nile delta. The small black dot at upper right is a blemish on the camera.
